I’m so thrilled that my painting “Outcast” has made another cover! This time it is literary magazine, The Journal. They also did a very in-depth interview and you can read it over here.
I made a quick trip to Columbus for the Ohio Arts Council Biennial Juried Exhibition at Riffe Galleries. It’s really quite amazing and you should check it out if you happen to be in the area.
Selected from more than 300 applications, the exhibition features contemporary works of art including installation, sculpture, drawing, painting, photography, and video by 59 artists living and working in Ohio. Here is me with my painting “Astronomer”
I also got a pretty fancy package from the Ohio Senate that recognized me for exemplary attainment.
I guess this means I’m a real Ohio artist, now? Although hey, I’ll always be a California artist, too.

This is on view at The Gathering Place at both their locations starting Friday and going through the winter.
I’m pleased to announce I was awarded a Artists with Disabilities Access Program grant by the Ohio Arts Council in an effort to bring my biomorphic series together as a solo exhibition for the first time!
This will be taking place in Cleveland this summer, more show info will be announced. The great part about this grant is it allows me to go larger with this work and will help pay for the costs associated with putting on an exhibition.
I will always paint people and portraits, but sometimes it is nice to take a break from that and work from a place of abstraction. I’ve only shown these paintings in group shows, in batches of 3, so I’m excited to be able to do a room full of these organisms!
