I want to thank all my students, parents and fellow painters for all the great memories at Room 101, an Art Studio in Mars. It has been a wonderful 10 years, filled with drawing, painting, problem solving, riddles, huckle-buckle-beanstalk and laughter. I am extremely proud of all my students and am thankful for all the friends I have made. It is a good time to slow down, dare I say retire? Nah! I will still continue to to commission work, plein air and teach workshops here and there. But mostly I am looking forward to spending time with family and friends, near and far. 

Feel free to contact me for any commission work and workshop classes you might like.
