I want everything I do to be informed by mindfulness.
For me the beautiful thing about art is its capacity to bring us into the present moment. When I go to a gallery or a museum and spend time looking in depth at a painting, I find that I have a quiet focus and all of the normal inner chatter and daydreaming are no longer there.
I love it when a piece of art brings a smile to my face, and I hope that my work can have that effect on people.
Currently I have two paintings showing at the Magnum Opus show at the Sacramento Fine Arts Center.
I have a solo show, "Fellaheen", happening in January 2015 at Merced College Art Gallery.
