Double Your Art Pleasure, Double Your Fun

Coming up in San Francisco at Modern Eden is a very interesting and fun idea for a show, all the artists paired up to collaborate on one project together. I teamed up with the lovely collage artist Katie McCann and we both were inspired to do an homage to Frida Kahlo. After all she gave to us, it's nice to pay it back... or forward as the case may be. Lots of great artist pairings here...
This show is in conjunction with an exhibition of Double Parlour - two shows of twos!

Allied Forces opens Nov. 17th, Reception: 6-10 pm
Shows thru Dec. 9th

Tree Spirit Art

Title: Hamadryad
Dryads, like all nymphs, were supernaturally long-lived and tied to their homes, but some were a step beyond most nymphs. These were the hamadryads who were an integral part of their trees, such that if the tree died, the hamadryad associated with it died as well. For these reasons, dryads and the Greek gods punished any mortals who harmed trees without first propitiating the tree-nymphs.

Medium: Gouache on wood
Size: 10″ x12″

A David Lynch Themed Exhibition and Halloween Party

- Two of my pieces are in this exhibition -

Explore the eerie, dark and surreal world of director David Lynch in Roll Up Gallery’s Halloween exhibition.
 The artworks incorporate Lynch’s weird sensibility, reflected as such in his films ‘Eraserhead,’ Mulholland Drive,’ and TV series ‘Twin Peaks’ (to name a few.) An installation replica of The Black Lodge from Twin Peaks will be also be on display for your “investigation.” COSTUME CONTEST: Best Lynch-inspired get-up to walk through the gallery receives a special prize!
