Scheduling workshops for 2024

How quickly time is flying by. I have had many workshops in this new year and there seems to be renewed interest in cold wax and oil classes and of course the excaustic workshops continue.
I no longer post dates for the classes, but schedule around the dates that the creatives choose. Those are my private classes and there are also sign-ups from Trip Advisor and Vawaa. I have been so busy that I have litte time to make new paintings, but 5 of my encasutic abstract paintings have been part of a group show in Gallery Calderoni, in San Miguel de Allende since December. Sales are good
It is a privilege to meet many new people that wish to expand their creativity both in the studio and in the gallery.
Contact me to schedule your workshop: and check out the workshop details and photos at my webssite

The Joy of Teaching

I have been blessed to have shared my knowlege of the encasutic technique and cold wax painting for over 18 yeas years here in San Miguel de Allende. My classes bring me joy and I love being able to offer them. It takes a lot of preparation to make them right for each participant. I take time to decide where to focus on the techniques, how to fulfill the emotional elements of the class and then adding new inspirations. That will hopefully create a personal experience for each participant. I now ask those interested in experincing paintig with wax and fire (encasustic) to let me know when they will be in San Miguel and we can plan the dates of the classes that best suit our schedules.
We can focus on painting portraits or abstracts,transfers or photo encaustic. For more information please see my website. or contact me at
