July 2017 // Hive & Hum// Santa Cruz, CA
LOVED the way Gary and Jodi (owners) showcased my work. My work married in well with the eclectic variety of furniture, homeware, cards and sculpture in their store. Gary’s eye arranged my paintings in a way that told a story. Both with color and graphic design. I met many talented people on the opening night, many of Hive & Hum’s clients are artists and interior designers.
April & May 2017 // Lupulo Craft Beer House// Santa Cruz, CA
This wonderful venue serves the best beer and the food is very tasty and reasonably priced. Noelle Antolin and her partner Stuie, really loved my work, and ended up buying 3 pieces to grace their home:) I hung a special piece I did using florescent paint at the entrance of the venue. Flood lit in black light, it showed a different look in the day, and nighttime.
December 2015 // Cameron Marks// Santa Cruz, CA
Amazing homeware, jewelry and clothing store with a contemporary vibe that fit in perfectly with my work. Vanessa Ambrose the owner is Australian so it was particularly great to show my work at Cameron Marks. The opening night was shared with 5 other shops also having their First Friday events in the Swift Street Courtyard Square.
August 2015 // Pasatiempo Art Show // Santa Cruz, CA
Hollins House, at the Pasatiempo Golf and Country Club, is the site for a yearly exhibition of art work from many artist living in Pasatiempo’s gated community. Many of the Pasatiempo golf members not living in the community also showcase their work at this yearly event.
March 2015 // Home/Work // Santa Cruz, CA
Fabulous homeware store owned by Sonia McMoran. It was my first dabble into these ongoing community events. Great response and a fun way to get ones work out in a commercial space.
