I'm Curating!!

I’m super excited to start working with La Playa Gallery in La Jolla as the new curator. It’s a rather new, small gallery with a lot of potential. I plan on curating great art shows, showcasing new jewelry and other forms of art. We will be implementing classes that I will be teaching including beginner painting, drawing and jewelry making. I’m super excited to be helping the SD community of artist while also introducing other US artist to the area. Make sure to sign up for the galleries mailing list so you can be in the know with the fun events we will be putting on.  http://www.laplayagallery.com/


I’m super excited to have been juried into the SDCAMA! This is a San Diego art/maker group that show and sell our work at Balboa Park a few times a month. For more info visit: http://www.sdcama.com/

I love old black and white photos and I add a twist to them by drawing them in color, adding or subtracting elements until I am happy with the results. Revisiting the past in a new light is what fuels this art. I normally start out using colored cardstock paper with Prismicolor colored pencils, often using vintage photos as a guideline. I do live drawings while I’m there so be sure to swing by and see what’s new and available for purchase!
