As well as being a surface pattern designer, I am a multimedia artist who utilizes a variety of size, textures, and media to express myself; I like to mix "high" art and "low" art, and I am inspired by the ordinary and the unusual alike.
I am honored to have had my fine artwork displayed in museums (Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, Tacoma Art Museum, The Art Museum of South Texas, the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, the Ackland Museum of Art, University of North Carolina); galleries (Rochester Contemporary Art Center, Kathryn Schultz Gallery, Gallery 37); corporations (AT&T, RTI International); government offices (USAID, U.S. Peace Corps Office of the Director); educational institutions (University of California, Berkeley, University of California Office of the President, and Casa de la Universidad de California in Mexico City); magazines (Nob Hill Gazette, Revue Magazine [Guatemala], PNG Air magazine, and the official "Welcome to Papua New Guinea" tourist guide); athletic institutions (Oakland A's); charitable institutions (San Francisco's Hearts & Heroes fundraiser to benefit the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center, Le Bonheur Children's Hospital, Baptist Memorial Hospital-Memphis); and in public spaces (cities of San Francisco and Oakland, CA, and restaurants in the SF Bay Area and Washington, DC). I also photograph events (Papua New Guinea's Goroka Show, New Orleans Jazz and Heritage festival (selected in 2020, postponed due to COVID-19).
I also enjoy volunteering and contributing work to charity (Bay Area Community Services, Le Bonheur Children's Hospital, Alpha Phi Fraternity), and I served as a member of the Emeryville Public Art Committee and juror for the 2017 Emeryville Celebration of the Arts Purchase Award.
