  • El Segundo Art Walk

    I painted this after visiting my homeland Taiwan, inspired by the southern regions of Kenting National Park. This painting and portraits will be at the El Segundo Art Walk on Thursday, June 20th! My art will be hanging at the Copper Willow Paper Studio on Richmond.

    I'm excited to be one of the featured artists for their magazine! The article talks about the portrait process.

    “I like to interject my subject’s personalities and what matters most to them into each piece. I think its a fun way to make art a little more accessible. Sometimes people feel intimidated, but if they see a glimpse of themselves or their loved ones in a painting, it becomes a lot more personal and takes on a whole new meaning.”

    The art walk will be on Thursday, June 20 from 5-9pm! You can find out more details about the event at El Segundo Art Walk.

     

  • Yesterday Begins Tomorrow

    I painted this for Hive Gallery’s Retrovision VHS 80's themed show. To me, 1980s movies frequently depicted unassuming kids entering alternate realities and dimensions (anyone remember The Hugga Bunch movie where the girl walks into the mirror to Huggaland?). The opening is next Saturday, June 8 in downtown Los Angeles.

  • Under the Moonlight

    Was excited when my friend Jennifer reached out to me to surprise her husband with a portrait of him and their son Atti. I worked off of photos she sent me. Eric and Atti howl at the moon every night so it was fitting to show them under the moon and stars. 

    This painting can be rotated vertically and horizontally!

  • 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!
