Exciting NEWS!  I'll be teaching "Dancing With The Wall" at the Pacific Northwest Art School next summer! On beautiful Whidbey Island, Washington!  July 12-16, 2022.  It's the most beautiful place and a great facility.  I can't wait to get back out there and enjoy the scenery and cool weather.  We saw jelly fish, seals, sea gulls and hiked through pine forests!
