New cyanotypes for ucdavis school of nursing
The new Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing, part of the UC Davis Medical Center, will open this October and my work will be included in the art collection for this state-of-the-art building!
Seven (!) of my recent "altered cyanotypes" were selected by a panel of judges. I am so excited that this new, rather experimental work was chosen. I sincerely hope it brings pleasure to those who see it.
Art in the collection of Kaiser Permanente, Roseville
Kaiser Permanente recently opened a new Behavioral Health Center in Roseville, California. Four of my pieces were selected for the art collection in the new offices.
All 4 images are peaceful landscapes and rivers I painted on location in Northern California. I'm so pleased to be able to share my work in this lovely corporate setting.
Pops in the Park Commission
In the spring of 2016, Council Member Jeff Harris's office asked me to create an original piece to promote East Sacramento's Pops in the Park summer concert series.
My collage Harmony was used on a variety of promotional materials for the event and on the June cover of Inside East Sac magazine. The magazine featured an article on me and my work and as a result I met some lovely new followers!
Archival limited-edition prints of Harmony are available.
guest speaker | Open Show Sacramento
Open Show Sacramento offers the local community of visual photographic artists and storytellers a forum to present their projects in engaging conversation.
In November 2016 the evening's theme was Alternative Photographic Processes. I was invited to join the panel of 4 presenters to share my cyanotype mixed media work. It was an honor to be included!
Royal Robbins | illustration
During 2015, my image of Half Dome in Blue was selected for use on hang tags for the women's spring clothing line for Royal Robbins. I painted the original watercolor en plein air from Curry Village in Yosemite Valley in the summer of 2012.
Royal Robbins is an "active lifestyle apparel company for rock climbers, adventurers and travelers" in Modesto, California. Founder Royal Robbins was a legendary rock climber and environmental activist with deep connections to Yosemite. This was the first time one of my watercolors was used as an illustration.

My artwork has been featured on 4 covers of Inside over the last few years.
The image on the left, The Eternal Optimist, is also being used as an eye-catching graphic on newsstands around downtown Sacramento.
