I’ve been drawing ever since I can remember, and took lots of drawing classes along the way. I remember especially a class with Bill Christenberry at the Corcoran School of Art. We drew in charcoal, then in ink with twigs, added an ink wash, and then graduated to watercolor. That was 20 years ago, and I’ve never looked back – it’s been a love affair with watercolor ever since.

I’ve been teaching meditation (TM) and yoga for over 40 years. Integral Yoga, founded by Swami Satchidananda, embodies for me all that yoga should be, and so that is the style of yoga that I teach. The first time I visited Yogaville, the Integral Yoga teaching center near Charlottesville, VA, I felt like I’d come home.

It’s my pleasure to share my watercolor paintings and information about yoga classes on this website. Hope you enjoy it.
