Happy May Day!

May 1st always reminds me of May Day in Catholic School when we danced around the statue of Virgin Mary with ribbons and flowers. I still dig Mary, all sweetness and light, none of that gruesome Catholic stuff. May is beautiful, my garden is going off, there are hummingbirds aplenty, its time to plant our summer veggies and a couple of my chickens even laid 2 eggs apiece this morning! That's Little Tina Turner up there hanging out in my studio.

Here's some info on a couple of upcoming shows I'll be in this month. I'm making some pieces for "Nurses and Donuts and Art, OH My," at Psycho Donuts, set to open on May 15...see details below. If you haven't been to Psycho Donuts in Campbell, it's a trip! Come to the daughter Ivy Atoms will be doing live drawing along with Christine Benjamin. Also adorable artist Trina Merry will be doing some live body painting. And of course there's "Delicious" at Studio gallery in SF, opening May 9th.

If you don't already have it on your calendar, solo show June 4th at Kaleid Gallery, San Jose, hope you can be there! If you'd like to receive my monthly newsletter with noteworthy events please email me at

Delicious Show Work Inspired by Food & Drink at STUDIO Gallery in San Francisco

Reception: Sunday, May 9th, 2-6 pm
Show runs from May 5th - June 6th 2010

The Bay Area's twin passions, Food and Art, come together in Delicious, our annual show of work inspired by food and drink. This year's show--our sixth!--is bigger and better than ever: over 100 local artists bring their talents to the party. There's something for every appetite: lovely views of farms and Wine Country vineyards, terrific still lifes, scenes of local eateries and bars, plus a bit of retro flair. Each year there are themes that emerge: this year there's a lot of red, a lot of smaller, affordable pieces, fewer vegetables and more junk food. But if pressed, we would have to dub 2010 The Year of Bacon: the show has a number of witty depictions of that favorite cured meat product.

Closed Monday + Tuesday, except by appointment
