DESCRIPTION

Come see my latest series of abstract acrylic works on canvas at our very own San Francisco Mission District institution, Pancho Villa.  I will have 13 pieces hanging on over 50 feet of wall length. I hope everybody will enjoy the show.  My reception is Sunday, Feb 15, 2-4pm.  See you there!

Statement

I am motivated and commited to a lifelong journey of creating a prolific body of work that brings awareness about our passions. I want everyone who sees my work to realize their alternative potential as an attainable reality.

On the wall, My art asks, “What's happening now?”, awakening our passions as we live out our lives - each piece is a never-ending reflection, like a mirror offering the truth over and over again.
