I will also be teaching Mixed Media Portraits at a select few places in 2016. I’ve reduced my away teaching schedule to accommodate family life so if you’re interested in a live portrait class be sure to check out my Teaching Schedule for updated information, I will be adding a couple more venues that are in the works soon.

A little sneak peek at some of what I’ll be teaching August 1-2 at Donna Downey’s Studio in Charlotte, NC. Because I have reduced my 2015 teaching schedule, this is the ONLY workshop I’m teaching this summer and the ONLY portrait workshop I’m teaching this year! My only other upcoming 2015 workshop is now full so if you are interested I hope you’ll consider joining me for a all inclusive, fun and inspiring weekend!
