I am excited to announce the public launch of this new artist website.
For far too long I’ve been using a site I hand-coded over ten years ago, and, reading through it one day, I realized it was egregiously outdated in both form and content.
My practice has changed in ten years - like many people who set out to be artists, I now wear multiple hats. At first this was simply a strategy of staying afloat amidst the financial crisis and hostile takeover of the Bay Area which has squeezed out so many artists. But as I explored various roles - including running a gallery, teaching, arts management, and legacy planning - I realized that I can make good use of my skills in this expanded field, and hopefully give something back to the community.
Throughout this time, I have strived to keep my practice alive. At times I’ve had to adapt to circumstances - much of my recent digital collage work was created because it’s more practical to hop on the computer after dishes and before bed than it is to start an ambitious, physically-demanding project. With a little help from my friends, I’m looking forward to the next ten years of productive work!
