This Fall & Winter, I will be teaching a 4 week session of Watercolor Techniques (beginning & intermediate) at Marnee’s Studio in Mobile, AL. Enjoy a morning of fun while learning the fundamentals of watercolor in a relaxing environment. We will cover the basic techniques including wet into wet, wet on dry, dry brush, masking, using mixed materials such as sea salt, paper towels and more. Consider taking if you are local and have ever considered experimenting with this medium. This class is also for those who have taken watercolor or would like to improve upon their skill level. We also have a drop in rate if you are interested in coming for 1 class.
The class will run on Wednesdays, October 17, 24, 31 & November 7.

I recently finished this very special custom work. Did you know that some people believe that a red cardinal is a representation of a loved one who has passed? When you see one it means that the loved one is visiting you and they usually show up when you most need them, to let you know that they will always be with you.

This is a sketch that I created with some of my new sketchbox materials and loosely inspired by the work of Gustav Klimt. The doe is actually cut from a piece of paper that my 4 year old painted. Shhhh, don’t tell her. I really want to make more collage pieces like this. It SOLD and is framed and ready for a new home!
