I am a self taught artist and have been painting for 13 years. I recently took a watercolor class at University of Wisconsin and LOVED it! I never used watercolor before but now it is my preferred media. I was published in this year's Northern Lights University of Wisconsin art catalog and won an award for best watercolor still life. I am married for 17 years to my high school sweetheart and have a set of identical twin girls and a boy.
