As an artist at heart, I have always loved to paint but never really pursued my dream until the past few years. In December 2014, while still living in Lake City, MN, I attended the Bob Ross Landscape Certification Training in New Smyrna Beach, FL and became a CRI (Certified Ross Instructor). I immediately started teaching classes and that started what has been an amazing journey. Since that time, I have continued my training and am now certified to teach the Bob Ross “Wet-on-Wet” landscape (CRI), floral (CRFI) and wildlife (CRWI) painting techniques. I now reside in Florida but during the summer I take my classes on the road and have taught in various states and venues along the way to include Florida, Alabama, Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin thus far. We even did a Bob Ross painting cruise to Cozumel in February 2020.
Some of you may remember Bob Ross from his “Joy of Painting” series on PBS. The Bob Ross “Wet-on-Wet” painting technique is for all skill levels and particularly those of you who have never painted before. Yes, you can do it!
At the present time I am in the process of getting certified in the Donna Dewberry One Stroke Painting techniques and will be adding One Stroke Painting classes to my schedule. Besides regularly scheduled classes I am available for private classes for businesses, co-workers, family, friends and team building events along with commission paintings.
