Hello. Thank you so much for visiting. I’m an artist and writer based in the beautiful Monterey Bay area on the scenic central coast of California.

Using visual media ranging from traditional to digital to comic art and text, I create provocative works that reflect my values of social justice and inclusion.

Following in the ancient traditions of artists as storytellers of the tribal community, I combine visual images with words to subvert the dominant culture of inequality, and contribute to lasting social transformation.

Please click on the images below to visit the portfolio galleries of my visual art works. Work that I can’t quite fit in these themes might show up in my blog posts. I invite you to read my blog, purchase art and leave your comments, too.

My Current & Upcoming
Art Exhibits & Sales

Art In the Time of Covid-19

My acrylic painting Persephone In the Springtime has been chosen along with works by thirty-four artists as part of a juried exhibition beginning mid-August 2021 at the Monterey County Health Department, 1270 Natividad Road, Salinas, California 93906, Administration Building.

The artists’ reception has been cancelled, with re-scheduling contingent on Covid-19 transmission rates in the county.

In addition to in-person viewing of the works at the Health Department Administration Building, a virtual exhibition can be viewed at the Arts Council of Monterey  website. The exhibition will run through July 2022.

Proceeds from art sales benefit not only the artists but also youth art education in Monterey County.

The Art of Cultural Subversion
Appeared at The Dalí Expo

The Dalí Expo (now the Monterey History & Art Association: Salvador Dalí) featured my work as the rotating solo artist during November 2019, including my painting King Sisyphus In The Underworld, as it did Karen’s in August 2019.

KRONOS, a fun interactive piece of installation art,  is the result of artist Karen Warwick’s creative vision and my collaboration. It was the centerpiece of her solo exhibition Time Flies in August 2019 — and continued to be accessible to the public in The Dalí Expo lobby for five-and-a-half months through January 13, 2020.

Original Art and Prints Are Available for Purchase.
