I am so honored to have four of my paintings transformed into a musical arrangement by the amazing Abby Kellems.
The performance is this Wednesday! Each movement Abby composed is inspired by specific paintings in my series Floaters and Focal Points. “The paintings (and the music) are about looking at the difficult realities of climate change and finding redemption.” – Abby Kellems
Admission is free, and you can also livestream the concert navigating to the Chamber Hall video feed.
I’m very excited to be a participating artist in the Disappearing Birds of North America project. I was given the task to represent one of the 389 birds that are on the brink of extinction in North America, based on the National Audubon Society’s groundbreaking climate report, Survival by Degrees: 389 Bird Species on the Brink. Thanks for asking me to participate Jen Delos Reyes!
If you are in the area, check out the Fire Transforms exhibition at the Palo Alto Art Center, opening September 17. My work is in the company of several other amazing artists. With smoke filled skies, this exhibition feels both timely and important!
I can’t believe that my painting, Chasm of the Bingham, was acquired for the permanent collection at the Phoenix Art Museum! Thanks to Robischon Gallery, Tomorrow’s Harvest and curator Besty Fahlman for making this possible! I am so thrilled to have my work alongside such amazing historic Western paintings.

I am so honored to be part of this exhibition, curated by Betsy Fahlman, at the Phoenix Art Museum. If you’re in the area, the exhibition will be hanging until March 6th, 2022. If you can’t make it to Phoenix, the Hirmer publication accompanying the exhibition is worth its weight in gold (no pun intended)! I am still pinching myself that the book designers chose my painting for the hardback cover.
Check out this beautiful folio for the Output – Art After Fire project I worked on as a co-conspirator and also as an artist mentor. It was amazing to see how the shared experience of wildfires brought artists and writers together from fire-prone Australia and the western United States.
