What we're about

West Coast Plein Air & Workshops Meetup is for all artists, beginner to advanced, who wish to learn about painting, drawing, and/or sculpting. My strength is in portrait and figurative work, but I teach all subjects well (horses, still life, & plein air). I have been a professional portrait painter and teaching for over 31 years! This means that I can help everyone is their own style of learning.

Do you just want to experience it, to see if it is something that you will enjoy? Have you been painting for a long time and just want to learn more about techniques? I can teach just about everyone! I am great at articulating the small stuff and making everything seem easier.

Being a great artist takes time ... but, we all start somewhere; it is something that can be learned with the right teacher. As we become better, the bar rises!

I can help you to raise your level of knowledge and skills!
