I am a Professor of Art in Grand Junction, Colorado where I teach multiple subjects in art and graphic design: including sketchbook, illustration, drawing, and all levels of graphic design. In addition to my regular teaching schedule I am available by invitation to teach workshops on the sketchbook, sketching with pen and ink with watercolor and travel sketching.

I have taught workshops in the recent past for the Yellowstone Association Institute up in Yellowstone National Park and for the Rocky Mountain Nature Association in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Please put "Sketch Blog Inquiry" or "Sketchbook Workshop Request" in the subject line so I will know to pull it out of my junk E-mail.
