I joined Concord Art Association. My paintings are currently up at the Library on Oak Grove Walnut Creek as part of the Concord Art Association’s Rotating Gallery. Every 4 months we move our paintings to different locations to display for the public at doctor’s offices, restaurants and other such places. Check out the Concord Art Association’s website to learn more.  There are 3 new portraits paintings up on my website and Im looking forward to painting more. Im also enjoying origami (paper folding.)  Ive been learning from YouTube videos but I can also follow diagrams in books or online.

Happy New Year! It’s the year of the rat so I made an origami rat designed by Eric Joisel.

I know last year I said I was going to stop origami, but I find that it helps to warm up my mind for painting and drawing, and I really enjoy the process. The feel and sound of the paper folding is very AMSR. (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response). I also created some Christmas Origami 
I love folding origami because it s clean art.  Painting and just about any other medium requires s de...

How I got started drawing caricatures

March 24, 2019
It was a nice sunny afternoon in South of Market Street, San Francisco and I was standing in a line to buy some ice cream after lunch with my sketch book. The line was long and slow, so I started drawing the kid infront of me in line. His mom noticed my drawing and was so impressed that With what I had done she asked me how much money it would cost to buy it from me. That was the day I became a professional caricaturist. I got my first official gig for a birthday on Craigslist. Soon after tha...

For the past 4 years I have been living a double life. In one life I have been working full time as a class B Commercial Driver operating a paratransit bus for passengers with disabilities 5 days a week. In the other life I haven been a professional artist drawing caricatures on weekends for parties and events. During the time when I'm not driving or drawing I am a father to 2 cats, a boyfriend, and a son. I try new things in an effort to stay inspired. For a while I followed many origami tut...

Over the course of the last month my art practice has undergone much growth and transformation.

Here is one I did for a client in Lafayette, California

I also drew caricatures for a client at San Francisco City Hall. It was a spectacular event. We were required to dress up in French attire and use French ea...

NEW ARTWORK! 2017

October 4, 2017
Two years went by where at one point the website went down, but I'm back with some awesome artwork to share with you.

I recently started going to the aRt Cottage in Concord, California where I was taught by Fro Gard to paint this rendition of Renoir's Luncheon of the Boating Party in Acrylic on canvas. The people in this painting are caricatures of my co workers at my full time job as a bus driver. This painting can been seen on the wall of the aRt Cottage. The R is capitalized because it's a ...

Newly completed artwork

August 11, 2013

Women's Mud Run
Chalk Pastels and Vine Charcoal on 18"X24" charcoal paper
This took about 2 weeks to complete; about 6 hours total.
I enjoy working with the chalk pastels because they are so much easier than paint.
The colors blend so smoothly. Mixing colors to create shades or tints happens right on the paper instead of the laborious, time staking, and expensive process used with mixing paints to get the right colors before applying them on the canvas.
The process of applying the color to the pa...
