Illustration Friday: Slither

This is a piece I did for one of my favorite collectors Oliver Wessel of his pet corn snake who is actually called El Diablo. So this one is aptly named "Dancing with El Diablo".

"SEE HERE" solo show at Kaleid Gallery Friday, June 4th

See Here, I have a show of new work coming to Kaleid Gallery on First Friday, June 4th. Included in the show will be loads of new paintings, some sculpture, a few of my "boyfriend " dolls and some really cool mosaic pieces that I'm really excited about! There will be live music and tasty vittles and of course me, please try and come by and say hi, I'll be there from 6-9pm.

In "See Here" I'm exploring the idea of telling someone off, letting them in on how you feel, letting your opinion be known, while at the same time saying "see, here, see inside my heart, feel what I'm feeling". My work is about emotion, its about what people think about but never say or about what you've said but wish you hadn't or about how actions speak more than words. Its a look both inside and outside your senses. My quirky, naive style is intentionally childlike, alphabet blocks spell out heart breaking messages and words packed with emotional heat are scrawled in brightly painted backgrounds. Our relationships with one another, and with the world around us are put under the microscope and seen through a simple eye, see here, it is what it is.

The opening also takes place during the SubZero Festival a DIY event of art, music and culture in Downtown San Jose. Please come see me first, then go enjoy the festival, it goes until midnight. I'll be there too!

"See Here," continues through July 9th.

Hope to see you on

June 4th!
