I did an interview with Voyage Phoenix. Be sure to check them out and see all the creative talent in Arizona.
After getting a slow start to the new year, I am happy to have some more work and much more to come! This month I spent part of the month exploring the creatures and plants of the Sonoran Desert.

I have resurrected my old blog! I will have some more work posted soon. For the past three years, I have been fighting a rare auto-immune disease called Wegener's Granulomatosis or Wegener's Disease. This has definitely affected my output and artwork due to severe illness. I am finally through the worst and back into action! I have many new prints for sale. I am looking forward to 2018 and I have many paintings and projects in store for everyone! Stay tuned!

Happy Spring Everyone! I have been working away on some new paintings. I will have them posted soon. I apologize that I was not in attendance for my past two shows. I have not been able to drive in the evenings due to neurological problems that give me trouble with my legs due to my Wegener's Disease. This is resolving itself quickly and thankfully this is "hopefully" no longer an issue :)
I am very excited to be asked to create a piece for the David & Gladys Wright House with the intent to bring greater awareness for the preservation of a great artistic treasure. The piece, consisting of a painted ostrich egg, will be on display at two events. All proceeds from the sale, will go to support Artlink and introduce the public to a great masterpiece of the Southwest. Below is where you can see the piece:
Event 2: Public Showing – Art Detour - March 19 and 20, 2016 in the Drive Thru Gallery Courtyard (918 N 6th St). This creative and innovative opportunity will introduce an expanding audience to you and our arts community while bringing awareness to the preservation and inspiration of the David Wright House.
In 1950, Frank Lloyd Wright designed a home for his son David and
daughter-in-law Gladys on 10 acres in the middle of citrus groves at the
base of Camelback Mountain in Phoenix, Arizona. The design elevated the
home in the form of a spiral rising from the desert floor, converting
the treetops into the lawn and revealing 360° views of the mountains
forming the valley. Mr. Wright title of the plans “How to Live in the
Southwest.” Completed in 1952, the David Wright House is one of three
spiral designs realized by Mr. Wright and the precursor to the
Guggenheim Museum in New York City. The house is regarded as Mr.
Wright’s last residential masterpiece.

Overcoming Wegener's Disease
To all my friends, I apologize for my silence and lack of updates to my website and blog this past year. I have been fighting a rare disease called Wegener's Disease or Wegeners Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis. A very rare auto-immune disease. This disease affected me severely and almost claimed my life. The Wegeners caused great damage to my body, making it hard to function for much of this year due to severe pain, sickness and mobility loss. Thankfully, I am in good hands with a gifted doctor who saved my life and a brilliant medical team. I am on the mend. This has required every facet of my will and physical strength to fight. I am finally doing better and getting back into the groove of things. I am still putting up the good fight and I should be fine.
I have been busy painting and working on commissions as I get my mojo back. New work is in my Etsy store. I plan to update my website soon :)
More to come. Stay tuned!
