After 12 years working full-time in my current studio space, I had finally reached full capacity. I love my space, it's natural light, and was fortunate to be able to annex ~200sq.ft. of the main hallway adjacent to my studio. Before construction began, however, I tore the studio apart sorting/donating/recycling years of accumulation. Then we got busy knocking down walls, installing new track lighting, repainting, and resurfacing the floors. The transformation has been amazing. I'm smiling every morning when I open the door, eager to get painting. Have a look!
Please join me for the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition's Annual Winterfest Fundraiser and Member Party on Sunday, December 4, from 6-10:30pm at The Village [Market Street between 5th & 6th] in downtown San Francisco.
I have donated artwork to Winterfest since 2002, the first year they included art in the auction. It's an honor to support an organization that has done so much to improve our beautiful city, making the streets safer for everyone. This year's donation:
"Eve", 2016, oil on cardboard, framed 16" x 20". Come out and support a great cause and enjoy the best fundraiser party of the year!
I am very excited to partner with the Bi-Rite Creamery in creating a site-specific 4 x 14foot oil painting for their Dolores Park location in the Mission District of San Francisco. Three custom birch panels were built to wrap around three continuous walls, creating a surreal panorama of the surrounding neighborhood.
Completed & installed in June, 2016.

I'm thrilled to have been selected alongside 5 other artists to create a mural on the exterior facade of The Midway—a 40,000 square-foot arts complex in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco. Each mural is a portrait of a side-show freak from a slightly askew carnival midway scene. Mine? Why, a fortune-telling pterodactyl, of course! "The Ptero Reader", perched at her table and feeding on the tools of her trade, is located on the far right side of the building alongside Benjamin Clarke's and Chris Blackstock's murals, "The Levitator" & "Twin Personalities", respectively.
The Midway arts complex, founded in 2015, houses a 3,000 square-foot art gallery, 9 artist-in-residency studios, non-profit spaces, an auditorium with culinary tutorial capabilities, a live music venue @ 2,000-person capacity and state-of-the-art surround-sound and lighting, and a daily cafe with outdoor garden space sheltered in the sunny bayside warehouse neighborhood just 10 blocks south of the SF Giants baseball park. Lots of exciting stuff happening at this beacon of creativity on the eastern shores of SF...check out their calendar for upcoming events.
