The workshop, held August 31st at the Bothwell Arts Center, turned out great and taught me as well! I’m giving my first students great introductory prices so that I can get their feedback and improve as a teacher, also, before I go out and do this on a broader scale. Want to join us? For a limited time, you can get my workshop materials for free, learn how to make luminous pours, and be one of my “pour painting test kitchen recruits” – click here.
Students practiced on plexi and then created these pieces themselves! Woot woot!

￼￼￼I am a professional artist with works currently collected in 6 countries, specializing in using Liquitex Pouring Medium (LPM) and high-end acrylics to create movement-based paintings that capitalize on LPM's amazing luminosity and light bounce.
For several years now, I have been a "Pour Painter" - meaning, I work by pouring paint mixed most often with Liquitex Pouring medium then tilting, smooshing, dripping and tilting again. In experimenting with it early on, I found it filled my need for visual movement as well as the fused glass look I've been after.
I recently completed an almost 7 month Artist in Residence at the Mendocino Art Center in Mendocino, CA, which brought my previous Underwater/Ocean Series above the surface with a new Coastal Rock series I'm excited by. Aside from these, I sometimes then do a more playful non objective abstraction, which sets me free if I'm getting too constricted.
I spent ten years managing the Bothwell Arts Center in Livermore while still maintaining my business as an artist. I left the Bothwell in March of 2017 and have dedicated my time to pour painting.
