I came to Kaycee as a total beginner to drawing, and she has walked me through the process step-by-step which is exactly what I need! Great at explaining techniques and why we are doing things to our drawings. I am excited to be gaining knowledge from the ground up and watching it come to fruition.

About Hugh
I spend hundreds of hours a month playing the greatest game in the world and could not be happier. I am grateful to have had the exciting opportunity to travel around the country these past few months playing the game I love. I posses a burning desire to become the best player in the world and will not stop until I succeed. I love to share thoughts and strategies with fellow players that I respect and am always evolving my game. I am playing great “winning” poker right now, but always see room to advance my knowledge and experience of the game. My hand reading ability is very accurate and gets better and better each day. They say you learn something new each day and with this very complex game I can say I firmly believe that. I was born to play this game with the greats. Poker is a true gift for me and I would love to have the opportunit
y to share my gift with you.

About James
I am best known for putting a lot of life and exactness into the eyes on my canvas; humans and pets. I have been painting for over 40 years. During this time I have continued my education by taking classes from other Artists and schools. I have used pastels, oil paints, charcoal, pencil, clay, mixed media, watercolor and acrylic. I prefer Acrylic for its control, exact pigment and drying time. Which affects over all project time. My specialties are faces, animals and abstract. All of which have been commissioned for me to paint or was a result of my donation of a custom painting to local charities.

James really took the time to explain the acrylic colors and shading. Especially great that I now know the difference between translucent, opaque and transparent. I have painted for years but his classes helped me rediscover a live for painting people. The eyes were the hardest until I realized I must capture the tiniest detail. I recommend him for any class. Very patient and very generous soul! Thank you!!!!!

I've watched first hand while James created some beautiful silver jewelry. He started with raw material, melted the silver, poured into molds, added gems, ending with gorgeous necklaces and/or earrings etc. He truly loves creating and is extremely talented which makes him able to pass on his skill to other
