• Wedded Bliss

    One of my dearest friends got married and I had the honor of painting the bride and groom as kids for their fairytale wedding. 

    Selina wanted to include all their favorite toys. Bryan's mom worked at Mattel so toys were a big part of his childhood. 

    And of course I had to capture the gorgeous flowers! 

    This was such a fun project and I would love to do more weddings! Congrats Selina and Bryan!

  • Happy New Year!

    I wrapped up a portrait for the Brent family. The Brents were my neighbors and I painted them six years ago. With the addition of Wyatt, it was only fair to create an updated portrait. Wyatt's toys are collaged in the background, with Luke's love of karate, along with Grandma and Grandpa. 

    Here is the first portrait I did with mainly Luke's toys.

    My, how they have grown!

  • Walk in the Park

    Walk in the Park

    I rarely make political statements with my art, but given the current climate I decided to give it a go with my friend's art show about climate change. Much of today's political landscape is driven by fear-fear of the unknown, fear of physical and personal attacks. With so many sexual harrassment trials coming to light, I thought this Margaret Atwood quote was very fitting:

    "Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them."

    This piece was also an update to the painting Running I did 12 years ago, a sort of where are they now with the same characters.

    Walk in the Park measures 13x6 inches.

  • Pasadena Art Walk

    Fall is right around the corner, and I've been busy creating new artwork for the Pasadena Art Walk! I'll have a booth with this painting and other art! I'll be showing with my friend Dany Paragouteva. The event is free and one day only. Do stop by!

  • Cola the Corgi

    The latest pet portrait I wrapped up is of Cola, a charming and mischievious corgi. I painted two for my friend so she could give one to her family. 

    I worked with Selina at her office where Cola liked to roam around freely and make his home on the engineering plans. Look at that face! He knows he is a cutie.

  • Mylo

    I created a wood cut painting of Mylo, my sister's fiance's goofy pomeranian. She surprised him with it as an anniversary gift. I've been experimenting with new tools and this was cut with a scroll saw. I'm getting the hang of rotating the wood, it did take a couple of tries! 

    Mylo on the wall. Measures about 12x17 inches.

    Next up, corgis!!
