I meet people where they are in their art journey and help them explore their creative potential. I offer many years of experience doing commisioned artworks and my own work. My favorite media are acrylic, watercolor, and drawing. I've been an artist for over 40 years. I also teach process (intuitive) painting for individuals and groups. The hallmarks of which are a non judgemental, feeling based approach to creativity which bring out a persons innate passion for expression.
I enjoy encouraging people to follow their muse. To find their unique gifts as creatives which can help them to honor themselves more deeply and by that honoring all of life.
I really appreciate Michael's deep knowledge of technique, as well as the breadth of his recommendations for other resources to support delving deeper into the emotional and archetypal realms of my art process experience. I have gratitude for his attentive presence with me one on one in guiding my exploration, and his sense of wonder and delight as we journey together.
The workshop was a wonderful blend of grounding ourselves in the natural world, and from there delving into creativity through watercolor. There was just enough instruction to feel supported, yet freedom to intuitively explore. Thank you Michael!
I meet and find what the student is interested in pursueing. They may want to learn a specific technique or be called to experiment with different media and find what calls to them.
Always following their muse.
