Artwork Archive's online service is a must for the serious artist who wants to manage their business with the same flair they bring to their art. Artwork Archive also provides a great management tool for art collectors. The feature list for both keeps growing and the service is a fraction of the price of similar online tools. I can not recommend it highly enough.
Taking cues from the natural world, I create work that's familiar to both the eye and the heart. These visual notes, rich with texture, trigger a memory fluttering at the edges and just out of reach.
Working primarily in oils and mixed media, I incorporate cold wax as a medium in my paint and enjoy the tactile quality it lends to the finished work. Depending on the way it's applied or handled in the final stages it can resemble polished stone, earth, or crumbling artifacts. I usually work in multiple layers and may completely erase what was laid down before by newly introduced marks. I use pallet knives, putty knives, and brushes to lay down and scrape away surface information.
In 2018 I was recognized by the Town of Fairfax and appointed as Artist in Residence, a Collaborative position awarded to 3 artists for 3-year terms. My appointment will end in February of 2022. This position provides an exciting opportunity to both promote and demonstrate the value of the arts in our community. A member artist at Marin Museum of Contemporary Art (Marin MOCA), I also chair the MOCA Exhibition Committee. As a former board member of Fairfax Volunteers, I am the artist member of a 3-person team from the Volunteer Board, leading the restoration of a 2000+ foot mural by artist Frank Gonzalez. The mural was originally conceived by Frank as a community project in 1983 and touched up last in 1993. Restoration, continuing with the artist's original intent, is a community effort and work will be completed in the summer of 2022.
