I hope you come paint with me!!


I am a native Texan born and raised in Dallas, now living in southern California.

I first started painting in watercolors on a hillside overlooking Lake Geneva while attending the American College of Switzerland.

Along the way, I taught a variety of art classes for ages 4 to 85. My first teaching experience was right out of college, teaching summer art camps at a Montessori school in Texas. Now I teach watercolor, acrylic, oil pastel, and oil painting. What do you want to learn? Let me know.

I hope you will sign up to play in the water with me.

Day 1 - Sketchbook Practice & Play

Day 1 - Sketchbook Practice & Play 


Grab your supplies. You need watercolor paper, paint and a few brushes.

I don’t know if you are like me. When I get new art supplies, I just want to jump right in. So that is what we are going to do on the first day. Practice and play in a multi-media sketchbook. I paint almost every day, do you? 


Day 2 - All About Supplies

Day 2 - All About Supplies


Drip, draw, and paint flowers in mixed media. Karen is going to show you how she got started in the field of illustration. It all started with a doodle.

Have you ever just started with a drip? The more we paint and draw, the better we get, right? Now is your chance to see what you can create from a drip of watercolor. Let your creativity run wild. We will draw, paint and play.

Day 3 - All About Brushes

Day 3 - All About Brushes


Have you ever seen a brush at the store and said, “Hum 🤔, I wonder if that is a good brush for painting in watercolor?” The brushes video is where I will demonstrate different sizes and brands. Then we will paint together and create an abstract painting.



Day 4 - Easiest Watercolor Flower Painting Ever

Day 4 - Easiest Watercolor Flower Painting Ever

Do you want to learn to paint some very easy but delicate watercolor flowers? Day 4 is the day for you. We will learn how to paint baby’s breath and along with flowers that look like petunias.


Day 5 - Drip Flowers

Day 5 - Drip Flowers


OK, maybe these flowers are the easiest flower paintings in the world. We will create drip flowers on day 5. They are abstract looking and do not represent any type of flower. SUPER FUN TO PAINT. Playing with water and brushes is the name of the game.


Day 6 - Abstract Watercolor

Day 6 - Abstract Watercolor


Express yourself with marks, swirls, and blobs. Freedom from the structure and photographic representation. We will create shapes, play with color and gestural marks that make you happy. Come play in the water with me.


Day 7 - Wet-on-wet Loose Wildflowers

Day 7 - Wet-on-wet Loose Wildflowers


We will paint wildflowers wet-on-wet and wet-on-dry techniques. The technique we will explore will create depth of field in your painting. Do you belong among the wildflowers?
I love to go for long walks. This painting reminds me of long walks I took when my dad and I were in Colorado one summer. We got there early in summer, and the wildflowers were everywhere.
