I was invited to be the featured artist for the San Diego Surf Film Festival.  This is an amazing 3 day event that I have been associated with for the past few years.  As a surfer, I am naturally drawn to events and people that share my passions.  This dynamic event "i...

Yesterday I went on an amazing snowshoe adventure at San Jacinto State Park, above Palm Springs.  It was my first time snowshoeing, so I was excited, but a bit nervous.

As a surfer, most of my time is spent near the ocean- so I am always prepared with the proper gear f...

On February 25th I teamed up with the Casa Romantica to help execute their 'Keys by the Sea' project in San Clemente.  They invited me to participate in a collaborative painting project on top of two donated pianos.

The past month has seen a flurry of new ideas and activity on my easel.  I've been having so much fun lately, working on a new painting series.  There are countless quirkey alleyways in this town. For years, I have walked around thinking to myself, " I should paint thi...

The La Jolla Plein Air Series continues... and this month I chose Torrey Pines as my location to get lost.  (Twice in one month, and excited to go back for more!)

Yesterday I thoroughly enjoyed another full day of plein air painting in La Jolla.  Part of an ongoing plein air painting series hosted by Misfit Gallery, I look forward to painting at a new location every month.  Selected artists are notified via email each month with...

Last week marked the end of my 2016 creativeKIDS art workshops.  It amazes me how some things work out the way they do.  At the end of 2015, the Hortense Miller Garden in Laguna Beach was awarded a small grant by the City of Laguna Beach for the purpose of offering art...

The past two weeks have seen a flurry of plein air painting activity.  I'm pretty exhausted at the moment.  I've been commuting between Laguna Beach and La Jolla, producing new paintings for two separate events.  It's nice to be able to sit down with a cup of tea and c...

During the Laguna Plein Air Invitational, I was able to submit one painting for the exhibit.  This Invitational Show features the most prominent artists in the country, and I knew that I needed to produce a solid piece of work.  So I decided to visit Cry...
