What you'll do
Learn the basics of watercolor painting and forage in my garden for leaves and flowers to paint. We'll discuss papers, brushes and materials, and I'll guide you step by step through a simple method of drawing leaves and flowers. Even if you're sure you can barely draw a stick figure, you'll come away with a beautiful botanical watercolor painting, and the discovery that you truly are an artist!

Paint + Brushes
I'm the resident artist and owner of Camp Cactus Studio, a creative place to make art, take classes and shop for handmade goods. A career artist, teacher and maker, I studied graphic design and photography in college and have worked as a designer, illustrator, and art teacher for over twenty years. I love to share the infectious magic of making things by hand, and light the creative spark in everyone I meet! A longtime member of the Portland art scene, I've hosted yearly sales at Camp Cactus featuring cool stuff handmade by local artists since 1992. Here's my website: campcactuspdx.com
