I currently have my own art business teaching watercolor classes through Bainbridge Island Parks Dept., Peninsula College and privately, along with marketing original paintings, prints and greeting cards. I am a full-member of the Artist COOP Front Street Gallery in Poulsbo, WA and Signature Member of the National and Northwest Watercolor Societies.
