Hi and welcome to my Patreon channel. I am working hard to make this channel a place of learning and enjoyment for watercolor artists of all levels.

My goal is to build an interactive community where we can share our work, request specific classes and get detailed feedback on our efforts. I plan to have three different tracks for beginners, intermediate and advanced students. This will be a welcoming place, a place for creative growth and positive support. I believe in art and I believe we all have the potential to achieve personal success in our art journey.

Now here is a bit about me:

In 2016, I was honored as a master artist by the International Watercolor Society. I am the recipient of several art awards. I am also the founder and past president of Ontario Plein Air Society, a group of Ontario painters dedicated to painting the Canadian landscape from life. I am a professional artist and teacher. I teach watercolours classes at Visual Arts Mississauga, Visual Arts Brampton and Oakville Art Society in Ontario. 



I paint not just what I see, but also the mood and the taste of the moment. My artwork is an exploration of light on the Canadian Landscape. There is a certain temperature to the light up here, a crispness that is uniquely Canadian. It speaks to me in a harmony of colours. Delicate but savage. Rich but not overwhelming - elegant. I hope it comes through in my work.

Goals
22 of 100 patrons

When we reach 100 patrons, I will revamp my camera and editing equipment. I will add a dedicated cam for the palette so you can see what I am doing there all the time. I will commit to an increase in videos and lessons.
All this takes time of course. Your patronage serves as a motivator for me to create and serve you more lessons more frequently
