I’ve found incredible inspiration exploring the widely ranging cultures I have lived in from: Kota Kinabalu on the island of Borneo to Beijing, China, Manila, Philippines, Whistler, Canada, and Hood River, Oregon.
Since my first international solo show in Manila, Philippines in 2000, I have participated in over 60 group and solo shows in the Pacific Northwest. My paintings are known for imaginative story telling of the soulful journey we are on incorporating people and wildlife as subjects in a unique blend of realism and abstraction.
I teach private lessons to adults and youth in my Art Circle Studio, everything from: Fine Art, Brave Art for Youth to Skateboard art just like the curriculum where I am presently head of the Fine Art department at Wildwood Academy.
See the Teaching link for more information.
My murals, reflecting Hood River’s local culture and heritage are on permanent display at the Hood River Museum of History, Henkle Middle School in White Salmon and the Diamond Growers building in Odell, Oregon.
My work is on display year round at the Hood River Artist collective at “301 Art Gallery” where I love connecting with collectors and the art loving community of my fellow artists.
