art and life - both the cherries and the pits

Here's my White Silk Scroll series, at my show at The Laundry in November 2016. These silk scrolls flutter in the breeze created by a fan. Working from live models, I draw digitally. These scrolls are printed on silk and are approximately 44 x 72 inches.

NEWS & UPDATES

NEXT UP! 

stARTup Art Fair, April 28-30, 2017

I have a piece in this exciting show with ArtSpan. This weekend don't miss San Francisco's contemporary art fair for independent artists at Hotel Del Sol. See: http://sf.startupartfair.com/tickets/

STILL GOING STRONG!

ART ATTACKS CANCER, Online until May 17, 2017

 Here's another great reason to buy art. This art sale and fundraiser benefits the Kids & Art Foundation. The foundation teams up children who have been touched by cancer with local artists. 50% of the proceeds from art sales will be donated to the Foundation for materials and stipends for volunteer artists. This show is now virtual (see photo of me and my piece at the opening). See: https://www.kidsandart.org/artfair

PRINTS ON PAPER

 Red and Black Moment is a fine art digital print edition from a gesture drawing, 20 x 16 inches, on deckle-edged Moab paper. Each print is hand signed and numbered. I have several editions available – new and older silkscreens and etchings, plus several editions of fine art digital prints.

SILK SCROLLS, A SERIES UNDERWAY

Check out my life-size figurative art scrolls! This piece, Reclining Red Head. It is from the series White Silk Scrolls. Each scroll is made as an edition of three, signed and numbered, printed on silk and ready to hang. More scrolls are underway. The next series will be my collages.

 

Blue Woman with Pink Posey is first in my series of life-sized soft sculptures. Printed on stretch fabric, hand sewn, and stuffed with polyfil. 2016

SOFT SCULPTURE, FIRST IN THE NEW SERIES

My soft sculpture will be on display and for sale at stArtUp SF in ArtSpan's room #309 the weekend of April 28-30, 2016. Blue Woman with Pink Posey is about the size of a young mermaid - she stands 5 feet tall by 1 foot wide. 

AUSPICIOUS YEAR-END

In addition to my fine art limited edition prints on paper and fabric, I've been designing and producing textiles and paper products from my original art! See the prototypes on my blog and in my shop: silk scarves, sofa pillows, tote bags, linens, gift wrap, and lots more. See my last show of the year photographed below. I exhibited my work with five women artists at The Blueberry Farm in Sebastopol, CA. Gorgeous light and weather throughout the weekend. What a way to end the year! Then I blasted off to Myanmar!

Here's a shot of my last art show and sale of 2016.
