I’m thrilled to announce I am now represented by Royse Contemporary, a new gallery in historic downtown Scottsdale Art District. It is a great honor to work with gallery owner and Arizona arts vanguard, Nicole Royse.

Royse Contemporary celebrates it’s grand opening, Southwest Contemporary Today, this Thursday during the Scottsdale ArtWalk. I will be exhibiting new work alongside exciting artists, Angel Cabrales, Monica Aissa Martinez, Daniel Shepherd, Marilyn Szabo, and Fred Tieken.  The opening has been celebrated in Phoenix New Times, Superstition Review and several other cultural arts publications. Please join us on this wonderful debut evening for boundary-pushing art, refreshments and music. You can also RSVP at Facebook.

If you didn’t attend the Opening Reception, or would like to see my work again, please visit me at the Closing Reception of my Phoenix debut solo exhibition, The Reaches. It is occurring during this Third Friday Art Walk in downtown Phoenix. Many art aficionados prefer the more focused, relaxed atmosphere of Third Friday to view and discuss work with the artists. My twenty works include never-before-exhibited pieces and some are even in the raw, unframed. Also enjoy some live jazz by Alan Jones and refreshments. RSVP here

Here is my most recent painting. I so enjoyed the creation of this biophilic and expressive work. I continue to explore the automatistic, spontaneous pulse of the narrative that unfolds when I paint or draw each element. And as well, I seek to combine the spontaneous gestures with my personal reflections on nature and life at large. You can also see this work at my website.

I’ve joined a group of Arizona artists who meet monthly. We enjoy discussing technique and latest community arts news, planning painting/drawing meetups and collaborate on exhibits.  12 of us will now be presenting our work in The Artery, a gallery run by a local artist collective, through a variety of group and solo shows. For February, we’ve chosen a love-themed group exhibition. Join us this first Friday!

I have received an invitation to a surrealism group show, Figure So Surreal, in May. This will be a large gathering of surrealists — some whose work I’ve followed for many years. “A journey into the minds of over 3 dozen talented artists as they dance with images of a surrealist world. From Arizona and beyond!”, writes Travis Fields, curator. I’m very excited to be a part. You can visit Facebook to RSVP or learn more. I’ll have more details as the date gets closer.

Here is my latest painting. The process of it almost haunted me as I swam from color to color, through tawny swirls of soil and rosy blossoms, then finally arrived at a greener palette. It seemed to me to be reflective of an innate tendency to draw toward nature, away from man made material, to be humbled and alive in a force that is greater than us, yet every bit a part of who we are. I feel we all need to go there, lost into nature places,  to remember what we cannot say with words. I still feel a lot of mystery about this work. I wonder if some day I might meet someone who knows the rest of the story. 

When He Himself Is Covered Green, 2016, watercolor, ink and pastel, 12 3/16″ x 15 15/16″.

I had a wonderful time exhibiting new paintings and drawings at “First Friday at The Pike” in Flagstaff, Arizona in February and March. I met the talented Ivan Bronston who is a sculptor, painter and graffiti artist. Helen Padilla also showed some new drawings – a rare and exciting treat. Matthew Koscica, an urban artist, and Ivan Bronston created “The Wall of Verona”, a hanging tarp canvas emblazoned with caricatures and romantic verses. Visitors were encouraged to add their own valentine interpretations in pictures and words. I really enjoyed meeting everyone who came out and receiving hugs from old friends. I’m very thankful to Jeff and Kari Maurer, the owners of The Pike, for inviting me to exhibit. My show will be hanging till March 14th.
