I just finished writing a book about watercolor called One Watercolor A Day, which features my own art and the other artists from Studio 1482. It was so much fun to play with watercolor in a slower way as well, and see the possibilities it offers.

With the One Drawing A Day book, examples of our own work are offered up as a point of departure for others, as a suggestion of something to try. The book creates an experiential and open kind of art instruction, as opposed to a step-by-step kind of instruction with a specific goal. And we like that idea so much that we have a new book coming out in December with a similar philosophy – One Watercolor A Day.

In addition to your work, you also teach at Pratt and Parsons. What type of classes do you teach and how has teaching affected your art?
Teaching has affected my art big time, since I feel a sense of responsibility to my students to work hard and be honest in my artistic expression. Practice what you preach, as the saying goes.
