Whether I’m out working in the field or in a conservatory filled with plants and flowers, if I want to draw better,
I must train myself to see better. To hone my craft requires thoughtful stillness, quiet meditation, and a sincere commitment to my practice.


In this workshop, you’ll learn different ways to approach

your subject. By altering points of view, perspective and composition, your ability to see things differently and connect with your subject will evolve. 


Probably the most important goal in my Nature 
Sketchbook Workshop is not a destination (i.e., a
perfect finished drawing), but learning to relish the
exquisite journey you experience by allowing yourself
slow down, carefully observe and reconnect with nature.


Once you’re comfortable with the materials and have some dedicated drawing time under your belt, beautiful and interesting things will begin to happen in your sketchbook.
