Michele Clamp Watercolor

Watercolor Art and Instruction

I’m a full-time watercolor artist and teacher. I love painting and sharing with people all that I’ve learned over the years. I post regularly on my blog and run classes and workshops throughout the year. Some of my work is available for sale and I am honored by everyone who takes one into their homes. Also my husband says I buy far too many brushes.
