It's been a while since I've been in touch-- things have been super busy! Im very happy to announce that I just (three weeks ago) moved back up the coast to the Bay Area, compelled by the arrival of my new baby niece and a desire to be nearer to my long time home of San Francisco. My work will continue to appear around Santa Cruz, however, at Felix Kulpa Gallery, the Hide, and elsewhere, so if you're based in that lovely land, I hope you'll continue to keep an eye out for my work.
I also gotta take a second and give a big shout-out to San Mateo City Arts, who welcomed me to my new digs with an acceptance to their upcoming group show Red in January, 2008...and also awarded me with a solo show upcoming in 2008 at the San Mateo City Hall Art Gallery (!). Thank you to San Mateo City Arts, and to their curator, Sinem Banna. I am very honored and excited!
Despite having been up-to-my-eyeballs in bubble wrap and cardboard these past couple of months, I've managed to book the following shows. I hope you'll mark your calendars, and feel free to help spread the word! Thanks so much, as always, for your support.
