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. 


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 to slow down, carefully observe and connect with nature. Our goal will be in the practice not the polish of a finished work. My goal is to conduct class using the outdoors as our studio.


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.
