Hi. This section shows the process I go through when making art. I enjoy working with a variety of materials and methods and the blog includes all kinds of mistakes, re-dos and experiments; kind of an online sketchbook.

From opening last night at DZINE gallery. What a great turn out. Thx to all who stopped by!

Several projects in the works. Basement getting crowded.

A few projects in progress #glue

Still building out the basic shape. This is about 2/3 of final height. Then I’ll carve out the form — a lot of chiseling in my future.

Lots of projects going on. Feels good.

At Women’s March.

Just finished this…

Starting to glue next BIG reject!!
I mean project!!

New piece that explores theme of architectural/archeological ruins.

Three Columns are part of Rock + Paper + Scissors show at DZINE gallery, SF. Open now.

Sawing this big chunk of wood is a challenge. I can barely lift it. Luckily it fits in the saw. Taking it slow on this…

Experimenting with wooden shims. Will try to make something w more volume…

More gluing…Look closely for bits of my rubber stamp collection! Nothing is sacred.

Working on two pieces now. Still figuring out final shape and dimensions.

Rough cut of first segment of a new wood piece. Looks like a large cork right now ://

Donny came over to shoot some artwork.

After having this in my studio for a few weeks, I realized it wasn’t finished and added a couple elements.


My etched plate with solvent looks better than the print. Something to be learned here…

Rough draft of etching. Still a lot to do.

Final configuration for large wood sculpture. Now to start the sanding and fastening…

Working out composition of large plywood drawing in space. Almost there!

Small painting/drawing w wire attachment on plywood.

Rough draft of laminated plywood sculpture.

Rough layout of large scale laminated maple sculpture.

Opening last night at Southern Exposure. So fun to see such diverse work in one show!

Southern Exposure is pleased to announce Crank, the organization’s Annual Entry-Fee-Free Juried Exhibition and Screening of new works by Northern California artists. This annual event is the premier showcase of contemporary artwork by promising local talent. With a different open-ended theme each year, artists are encouraged to pursue a broad range of artistic expression across media.

The juried exhibition and screening features Northern California artists living north of King City and south of Red Bluff. Jurors Lorelei Stewart and Gabriela Monroy select the works by blind process, choosing pieces across media that exemplify Southern Exposure’s commitment to supporting new, innovative, risk-taking contemporary visual art practices.
