I have collaborated with Bird Academy at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology to bring you a self-paced online course on Nature Journaling and Field Sketching! Whether you're looking for a creative spark for your artistic expression, a way to develop your observational skills, or an immersive and mindful journey through nature - my course will guide you with friendly art instruction and engaging practice sessions that will help you make the most out of your journaling.

No previous art experience is required for this course - with over 4 hours of video instruction I'll help you build your confidence in filling your journal pages with sketches, paintings, observations, and reflections. Join me in this course to transform your relationship with art and the natural world!


I have had the pleasure of teaching drawing and watercolor classes in Seattle Washington, Nashville Tennessee, and Ithaca New York. My teaching covers the subjects of scientific illustration, field sketching, and watercolor. I have worked with students of varying ages and skill levels; from complete beginners to experienced painters. I love to work with newcomers to art to help them lay a foundation for drawing and painting to become a part of their lives. ​


I also offer private lessons for beginners to help you get started on your journey to being an artist! Historically these lessons would have been in person, however in these unprecedented times I am offering lessons online to students 12 years of age and up!

To set up a series of classes, a workshop, or a private lesson - please contact me below. Describe what type of instruction you are interested in receiving, how many people will be participating, and what dates you are hoping for.
