MEETINGS & DEMONSTRATIONS

Our next RCAS meeting will be May 21, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. Location is the Richardson Public Library. The April Demo Artist will be Ron Stephens demonstrating Acrylic/Mixed Media.

My art background is based on an interest developed early on growing up in Texas. I loved art from childhood to high school to college and then to a career in advertising in the Dallas area. In the beginning in advertising I was in the creative end and later in production. I retired from a 33-year career in advertising in 2005 and began thinking about a retirement career.

I began painting in watercolor in May 2006 after reading many books and taking a weekly watercolor course from Tom Wellman, President of Southwestern Watercolor Society at that time, at the Irving Heritage Center. Since then, I have taken workshops from Carl Dalio, Naomi Brotherton, Mark Mehaffey, Skip Lawrence, Maureen Brouillette, Andy Evansen, Michael Holter and Richard Stephens. I have been accepted into many local and regional shows and have managed to win some awards.

I am member of the Southwestern Watercolor Society. I received my Signature status in SWS and to the Texas & Neighbors exhibitions in 2014 and to Western Federation of Watercolor Societies in 2016 and Texas Watercolor Society in 2017.
