lunch hour at the law office. If not for the step-by-step process of decorative
painting I would not have been introduced to the world of painting. The use of
line drawings, the emphasis on technique and written instruction makes it
possible for anyone to learn to paint.
In 2000 I started painting primarily in watercolor. I chose to paint primarily
in transparent colors to distinguish from my years of painting in acrylics. I am
excited to introduce Mission Gold watercolors by Mijello. This new line of
watercolors have wonderfully rich pigment with high viscosity without the use of a
thickening agent allowing you to use less watercolor pigment on your brush.
Like many of us, I work full time and therefore I take my painting time seriously
and perhaps have a greater appreciation for my time spent painting. It is my joy
and often times, my therapy. As much as I like painting, I love teaching. I have
the pleasure of teaching students at my home in St. Paul and throughout the
United States and Canada I am actively seeking travel teaching opportunities.

and stamping/card making. I also work full time as a Family Law Paralegal.
