Joe and I have been friends for over 30 years. We both were Civil Engineers, then Transportation Engineers, and then Computer Analysts. We teach our workshops together and hang out with the same art crowd.
I've been in the Eastside Association of Fine Arts group (EAFA) for over 10 years and am a past president. It's a friendly, non-cliquey group. Meetings consist of 90 minute presentations by local master artists. EAFA stages several visual art exhibitions during the year.
Water media (transparent watercolor and acrylics) have been my primary media for most of my art career. The Northwest Watercolor Society (NWWS) meets in my home town and I've been a member for over 10 years.
America's oldest fraternity of professional artists. These are some of the best artists in the Pacific Northwest. We have an auction every year where patrons buy fantastic art at incredibly low prices.
