I started teaching watercolor at Village Center for the Arts in New Milfird CT. Some of my students have never painted in watercolor before, they did great and had a blast!!! It was amazing I had so much fun. 












I won second place in oil/acrylic at the Richter Art association Juried Show in Danbury CT. for my painting "Fishing in the Shade".

I also was accepted into the Northeast Watercolor Society 42th International Exhibition for my painting "Sea Turtle" inspired by my trips to Florida.
