My painting, "Bufanda de Seda" will be apart of the exhibition titled The World of Frida at the Bedford Gallery in Walnut Creek. 

In March I visited La Casa Azul Museo Frida Kahlo in Mexico City. Photographs, paintings, tapestries and furniture all remain as if Frida touched them last. I was drawn to her clothing as it was such an expression of who she was, and narrowed in on a particular portrait of Frida adorned with a red rebozo. My painting is a representation of that portrait as well as capturing that moment in time. 

Opening Reception: Sunday, July 8th, 3 - 5pm

For the first time ever, the founders of ONE+ONE+TWO Artist Collective will have work exhibited and performed at the Spare Change Artist Space in the Financial District of San Francisco, opening May 31st, 6-9pm. 

"The Bay Area is hemorrhaging artists. With skyrocketing housing and studio rent, exorbitant costs of living, and limited opportunities to earn the 6-figure income needed to “live comfortably,” there’s no question as to why. But some have seen opportunity through hardship. ONE+ONE+TWO, a San Francisco-based artist collective, has focused on creatively mobilizing alternate forms of currency to allow artists in the Bay Area to thrive. Through pooling resources, creative problem solving, and simple acts of generosity, these four recent graduates of CCA’s MFA program in Studio Practice have successfully connected more than 100 artists from the Bay Area and beyond with the resources they need: workspace, exhibition opportunities, and dynamic conversations around newly created visual artwork. Since January 2017, the collective has hosted public programming in their collaborative studio space in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco. The current exhibition at Spare Change Artist Space features meditations on the meaning of currency from the founders of ONE+ONE+TWO."


Out Now! My work has been included in The Watercolor Ideas Book by Joanna Goss alongside so many other wonderful watercolorists! It is such an honor to be part of this beautiful little book! You can buy your copy now at Target, Barnes&Noble or on Amazon!
