Having stumbled into "tole painting" now referred too as "decorative painting" 38 years ago, I still enjoy it as much
today as I did 38 years ago when I started.

I have been blessed to have been teaching for 34 of those years and have taught workshops and at conventions throughout the United States and in South America.

Using Decoart acrylics I have been able to develop a shading and highlighting technique that requires very little floating and achieves a much softer look for your dark and light values.

I have authored 4 books and am in the process of working on a 5th, hopefully to be available in the spring of 2014. I have also authored a Christmas CD which is out of print and a DVD explaining my technique along with 2 projects. Two new DVDs are now available for 2 new projects.

I truly enjoy teaching decorative painting and cannot imagine the hole in my life if I had never found this exciting pastime.

I have served on the Board of Directors for the Society of Decorative Painting 3 times and am enjoying being a part of the resurgence of decorative painting.
