Just Getting Started in Watercolor

For those that have never picked up a brush, includes a 6 month lesson program

Do you think watercolor is just too hard?

Are you embarrassed to show anyone your paintings?

Do you dream of being a watercolor artist?

Here is a clear success path just for you

As a professional artist with three best selling books, I help painters of all ages, become the watercolor artist they have always dreamed of. This proven step by step process, gives you a clear success path with easy lessons, while you gradually build your skills and remove the fear and overwhelm.

I am often, teaching focused online courses, and live online and in person workshops, but what I realized that many beginners wanted to join but had no idea of where to start.

I have two beginner programs available, one for the new beginner who has never even picked up a brush, and one for those that have already tried watercolor, and want to build skills and become more comfortable with the medium.

You can become the watercolor artist you have always dreamed of with my different programs
