Happy New Year! Let’s Go!

Hey all,

Thank you for making 2014 the best year yet!  And I am so excited to make 2015 even better than that.  For most of January and February I will be painting some new things and taking on a few commissions.  I am also researching a new web store.  Etsy is ok….But I am pretty sure there are some better ways to do this.  So for now my Etsy Store is closed.  Something will be up shortly.  I have a few gigs coming up…and a few more to be added soon.

  • Jan. 24th  -  Live Painting with La Gente at The GAMH!
  • Jan. 27th  -  Emerging Artists 101 Workshop at SomArts with ArtSpan

Hope all is well with you and here goes the next chapter….thanks for following along.

Mural at the Treasure Island Music Fest!

Yesterday I had the great pleasure of working with people from all over the world (From Australia and Virginia to Fresno) to create a large interactive mural at the Treasure Island Music Festival.  I was there with Allison Snopek from ArtSpan .  Thank you Noisepop and Artspan for making it all happen.  Thanks to Blick Art for donating supplies.  Special thanks to the hard working volunteers.  Thanks to Paige and Risa (sorry if I misspelled your names) for working really hard all day, as well.  

We started around noon and didn’t get done till after sundown.  Over 350 people participated in out art adventure to recreate 2 of my paintings.   Thank you to all the artists!  You all did a wonderful job.  Take care.

Open Studios Guides!


We are just about 2 weeks away from the start of SF Open Studios.  This is the nation’s longest running and largest Open Studios program.  Each year artists invite all of you into their studios and work spaces to see their latest works and give you a taste of their process and environs.  One of the nice thing about Open Studios is that you get to get up close to the artist and really get their full attention.  I always enjoy seeing their work spaces and studios.  It is a completely free event.  So get the guide (at Blick and many other art outlets like galleries and coffee shops) and figure out which artists you are going to track down.  As many people know, my painting ‘Young Family Walking Through It All’ is on the cover of the guide!  I am honored and excited to be a part of Open Studios this year.  Take care.



Open Studios Prep!


Getting things ready for Open Studios.  October 25th and 26th.  Be here or miss out…
