I Moved Into My Own Studio!

Mark Your Calendars: Open Studios will be Saturday, November 7th and Sunday, November 8th.  Come through!

My Studio at Pacific Felt Factory, San Francisco
Incredibly excited about being among the first twelve artists selected in a rigorous application process to move into a brand new, below market-rate art space in the Mission District in San Francisco.  The resident artists include world-class performance artists, architects, installation artists, printmakers, and painters, and I am constantly inspired by each of them every day.
We had a soft grand opening a few weeks ago, which was an enormous success, and I’m really looking forward to having more events here soon.  
Like PFF on FB or click on any of the icons below to check out my current work and find out more about events at our new space! 
Some in progress photos of what’s currently on the easel. Will be updating Instagram and my FB page with new stuff, and will have some new pieces completed by Open Studios. Or just come by and visit if you’re in the neighborhood, I’ll be here!

Art | Song Salon

Hosting Art | Song Salon: As a way to give back to the community that has given so much to us, Jessica Wan and I founded and host Art | Song Salon quarterly. Art Song Salon, now on its second year, is an intimate, thoughtful salon pairing visual art with live classical performances around a theme and discussion. The last event “Saudade,” was held at Pacific Felt Factory, which was an enormous success. Our next event will most likely be sometime in September or October, but we encourage you to “Like” the Art | Song Salon FB page or sign up on our website to receive an invite to our next salon. 

Demos, Workshops, Classes

Art Demonstrations: Currently working as a demo artist for Savoir Faire, Inc. to represent their brands and provide art demos to Art stores across the Bay Area. This is me looking dorky in front of folks at a watercolor demo at Napa Valley Art Supplies.
