When I’m not busy in my studio, I’ll sometimes write about other artists making glorious things. Check out my article for The Blue Review, titled “8 Artists Who Are Absolutely Fearless,” for a quick introduction to some artist friends making mind-blowing works (featured here: David Pettibone, Carrie-Ann Bracco and Lisa Lebofsky). Keep an eye out for their wonderful work!
One of my favorite large-scale pieces is now up for sale through the New York Academy of Art’s online storefront on Paddle8 — check it out, along with many more beautiful artworks by fellow NYAA alumni!

Gearing up for my 2-day Watercolor Workshop at Sadie Valeri Atelier on Saturday, April 28th & Sunday, April 29th from 10am-5pm. We'll delve into a variety of techniques for working with watercolor, and what makes the medium so versatile and fun. I bring my travel Winsor & Newton watercolor kit with me everywhere - like Cornwall, for instance - and am really excited to share my love of the medium with folks at Sadie's beautiful San Francisco studio. See you there!
The March/April 2018 issue of Artists on Art is here! For the second installment of my two-part series, "Art in the New Political Age," I interviewed two remarkably talented artists, figurative painter Cara DeAngelis and interdisciplinary artist ER de Grey. We spoke candidly about the current political landscape and how it has impacted their art practice, as well as the specific pressing issues their work addresses. It was an honor to share my conversations with two incredibly engaged and thoughtful artists with the Artists on Art readership, and I hope you will give it a read!

It was a pleasure to spend a rainy Sunday sharing Love It, Locket, Leave It with friends and coffee this past weekend at Island Weiss Gallery! For those who could not attend, I provided context for appreciating the exquisite lockets on display and shared some of the courageous stories behind the works. In the final days of the exhibition, I want to congratulate all the exhibiting artists for stepping outside of their regular studio practice to create such personal and precious small works for this project. Love It, Locket, Leave It artists, I take my hat off to you!
