If you’ve tried the food at Salt’s Cure, you know it’s good! They opened a restaurant called BREAKFAST, and their griddle cakes are pretty ridiculous. They hired me to paint over the side entry walls with a new, clean hand-painted sign.
I’m happy with the way it came out!
I had the chance to fly up to San Jose to assist the very talented Morgan Bricca, Muralist Extraordinaire! She really was the sweetest, and was so open about her experiences as an Artist. I appreciate the time I got to spend with her.. She’s a special soul who continues to grow everyday and has such a great attitude towards life. What a blessing! She set me up with her neighbor, Anh, a vietnamese hairstylist with a gorgeous Airbnb. Anh and her husband made me feel at home, inviting me to meals and wine..top notch hospitality! Take a look at some photos I took of her property. They have a chicken coop, bee hives, a tennis court, pool, and a bicycle she lent me to ride around town whenever I needed!
I was asked to include a piece for the Chiari Brain Malformation Art auction; an event to help raise money for research of Chiari Malformation. I jumped on it and created a colorful canvas, inspired by the vintage textbook anatomy of the brain. I love the “old-timey” words we rarely use these days and I’ll admit I had to look some of them up in the dictionary. I added a RESET button to give the painting a modern feel, as we are living on the cusp of robotic humans taking over, in my opinion. I named this A Healthy Brain.
It was sad to say goodbye when my baby was auctioned off, but it was for a good cause. For that, I’m grateful to have been able to help people with this condition.
Here are some photos of the process of beginning to end- which took me a couple of days: Continue Reading »
This past weekend I was asked by Barkbox to draw pet portraits in Manhattan Beach! It was so fun meeting everyone and to support such an awesome company! I took about 25 min for each dog and used photos because my models don’t know how to sit still very well 🙂
Barkbox just launched their first book called Dogs and their People – a collaboration of stories, anecdotes, and photos for all Dog Lovers. Check it out in the link above!
I finally got to check out the new Broad museum in Downtown, LA!
