My ECR Method of Establish-Compare-Refine walks you through the exact steps you need to follow in order to create a great painting. It’s so logical and straightforward, yet leaves so much room to express yourself!
So why is painting in gouache sometimes so. Dang. Hard?
Your paint dries on the palette before you’re done. Your colors look thin and weak. Your colors look dull and chalky. You feel like you’re wasting paint sometimes! Why don’t your gouache paintings look as vibrant as you want them to?
You don’t want to waste paint anymore.
You fear that you’re not “doing it right?”
You think you’ll never “get it?"
It doesn't have to be that way.
When I first learned to use gouache, it was done in a way that was very rigid and not very fun...
It wasn’t until I saw artists treating it as a true painting medium and not just for design that I was opened up to the world of gouache as a legitimate fine art medium.
Even so, it took me years of learning, trial and error, and experimentation to get to where I am today.
That's why, in just 8 weeks (the length of a typical college art course), you will see a transformation not only in your understanding of gouache, but in your understanding of painting at large! These are lessons that you will be able to take into other media beyond gouache!
You've got a master of gouache living inside of you.
Don’t hesitate to bring that master out of you!

Humble beginnings as a creative person can lead you down a path to make your dreams realized in the future with enough hard work.
What I hope to bring to the world is an understanding of the importance of beauty for the human soul by creating the most beautiful awe-inspiring works I’m capable of, and helping others create their art at the greatest capacity, then communicating why these works matter.
My paintings are the truest representation of what I want to express and what I believe to be the best representation of what I consider beautiful. They present my skillsets in all facets to the highest degree and what I want you to have the ability to access.
Since beginning participation in events in 2010, I have won the Carmel Art Festival in 2017, Sonoma Plein Air’s grand prize award in 2013, the Valona Paint Out best of show award twice, 3 awards in the San Clemente Festival, and many more.
