For 2020 I have been selected to take part in the DeYoung Open Exhibition, October 10th 2020 through January 3, 2021.

Also in 2020, Open Studio through Artspan has gone mostly virtual. My work will be present on my website and on Facebook and Artspan's website. I will be responding to emails and will set up a time to see the works in person, I will also work with those patrons who wish to purchase works in a safe manner; contact me via email: [email protected].

My work is based on a few things, photos, visions and abstraction.  My photo based work uses images which are recognizable, WWII history, various armed conflicts through recent history, and some Family photos.  The visionary work is harder to describe as the work starts any number of ways but usually involves finding images while in process of painting create a narrative.  The abstract work does contain in it references to figure and landscape, but is not specific.  I paint these alongside each other with no need to favor one over the other, they seem to me to be related.
