Early Morning in the Studio with Phoenix..

This is me early in the morning working on “Phoenix.” Getting up early means complete concentration. 😀 I needed to draw on both sides of this 11 foot installation and this was the only way! This piece was both a psychological and physical test for me. Sometimes the challenge of working this large felt overwhelming but ultimately I got there one day at a time!

View this installation on Saturdays at Slate Contemporary Gallery in Oakland, CA. They are open from noon-5pm and weekdays by appointment. The show is up through May 29th! ❤🌷

UNC Asheville International Drawing Show…

I am so honored that “Juliet of the Spirits II” was selected to be exhibited in the University of North Carolina Asheville 12th Annual International Contemporary Drawing Exhibition. The work selected for this group exhibition is as diverse as it is fantastic. Check it out at https://aah.unca.edu/exhibitions/drawing-discourse/dd-13-test Beautifully curated by the amazing @pamelaphatsimo

“Juliet of the Spirits II” is 12″ x 16″, made in 2020. It is gouache, candle smoke and graphite on paper with hand cut drafting film. An homage to one of my favorite films by the great Frederico Fellini and his fearless exploration of truth through fantasy and imagination.

This work is available for purchase through SLATE Contemporary at https://slateart.net/contact/
