I’m so excited that I will finally have a public space to open up for classes and retreats! My new studio building is located in my fabulous hometown of Seaside, Oregon – a lush coastal community with miles of beautiful pristine beaches and vivid ocean views. Seaside is a small coastal resort town surrounded by nature’s wonders: Elk wander freely in our yards; seals mingle with the surfers; gray whales and dolphins graze offshore; tide-pooling at dusk; beachcombing after a winter storm unearths treasures washed up from far-off lands half a world away. It’s a combination of the historical past (near Lewis & Clark’s final destination) and quaint modern coastal community. The vintage 1920’s promenade boardwalk skirts the Pacific Ocean for a mile and a half and in the summertime the town is buzzing with activity. This is my hometown and the magnet that has been pulling me back North for so long. It’s my greatest dream and exhilaration to offer classes and retreats in Seaside, Oregon and to share the wonders of the Oregon Coast with you.
From an artistic perspective, growing up on the Oregon Coast made me a seeker of wonders. From the old growth woods, perched above the ocean, to the thundering surf pounding against the rocky shore, to the fog hanging over sandy beaches- the landscape offers up its treasures and dynamic inspiration to the willing soul. “You, Me, and the Sea” is a small retreat designed to share the inspiration of the Oregon Coast and the opportunity to immerse yourself in sketching, painting and mixed media projects based on the natural wonders of the sea. Together we will spend 3 days in a whirlwind of creativity- drawing, painting and projects inspired by the ocean and its offerings. We will absorb the colors, materials, and treasures of the landscape and turn them into unique artwork.
