I would love to see you and show you my new work! It’s fun and I am really enjoying creating these new pieces. I am here between 11am and 6pm both Sat and Sun, or PM me to set up an appointment with a smaller group. Thanks and see you soon! 🙂
Trying out a new background for my figure study series that I started a few years ago. I have now begun to photograph this work again with new models and it is so much fun!
Things we once took for granted was to work with people indoors and in smaller spaces (as my studio). This kind of luxury is now coming back where artists once again can collaborate with each other.
Here I am preparing a photoshoot with some new ideas, see images below.

I drove up north to visit friends in Santa Rosa over the weekend and stoped by Sugarloaf Ridge State Park for a hike. It’s gorgeous up here with choices of hikes past waterfalls or to walk up the mountain. Obviously there was no water in the falls this time of the year.. but I can imagine how beautiful it is during early spring. This time I chose to hike up the Bald Mountain walking through fire ravaged landscape with surviving trees. When I finally made it to the top I found the 360˚ view spectacular and as you can see on the photograph below.. at the horizon you can see as far as to San Francisco. An amazing hike and a wonderful state park to visit.
For a long time I had this vision to have magnetic walls in my studio where I could just easily hang up new prints or use as a vision board. Didn’t know if I wanted to commit to a real wall with metal sheets though and suddenly I realized that my shelf unit – that really was ugly – would be a perfect place to build walls on.
Here are a few images from that project where I’m sanding, glueing metal sheets on to sliding walls and at last spray paint on to the final surface.
Yay! I’m so excited over this and building it myself was fun!
