I was asked by Liz Cockrum ( http://lizcockrum.com/ ) to participate in this event at TOMS in Venice, Ca. It is really wonderful to be asked to join in and to share my work with more people. Below are the two pieces of mine that will be on display.
I am a Southern Californian artist inspired by the world where the land and the ocean meet, by the moments that take place in its transitory environment. I hope that my paintings impact people in a positive way by revealing what is overlooked or difficult to express. Surfing, in this context, is a series of beautiful ephemeral moments. Experiencing one for a short while, letting it go and then finding it in another wave in a different moment. Painting, for me, crystallizes these moments of surfing and life that are transient, making them tangible.
