My third ArtBox in San José, freshly painted at the intersection of Quito Road & Bucknall Drive.
Part sculpture, part painting, these wall hangings are made from pieces of a heritage Valley Oak tree from the border of Walnut Creek, CA and Contra Costa County – also known as the Boundary Oak.
I had extra “found” landscapes on hand, and continuing that theme was partly out of necessity as my art sources and studio access got disrupted to varying degrees during the COVID-19 pandemic.
A fresh new type of commission: an animation cel portrait!
Symbols in our public space are gaining extra scrutiny for the worldview they present.
These are nursery paintings for the #quarantwins Aubrey & Oliver. I got the idea to create a pair of paintings so that each one can have one when they’re older.
This is a commission I recently finished in front of the Casa Verde apartment complex – they requested art that would be vibrant and fun.
This mural is part of the early response, organized by Local Color, to support local businesses with art of hope & solidarity after the first weekend of protests following the murder of George Floyd.
When I’m feeling stuck I usually end up doing art that either tries out different textures or different media.
This is the largest painting I’ve done yet! It’s a shipping container owned by Veggielution (8′ x 8′ x 20′).

The ArtBox Project is an effort to bring more art into neighborhoods by sprucing up overlooked-but-ubiquitous utility boxes.
A timelapse of my painting technique, plus thoughts & rants about digital art tools.
I haven’t done many abstract works so this is a bit of an exploration for me.
About 15-20% of what I came across ended up working for this particular project. Here are the various reasons why pieces were either non-starters or failed along the way.
This show is the culmination of two years of collecting amateur landscapes in need of a little love.
Last one in the Harvest series skews tropical with papayas. This ended up being both the biggest fruits (only four on here) with the smallest details (little black seeds).
3rd of 4 in the Harvest series – avocados, cut open to show off the green insides and shiny pits.
Another fruit in the Harvest series – this time, a little pile of blueberries. This one’s more of an experiment in subtle patterns within a dense texture.
I was struck by the lighting and the rhythm of the layout. Two other people were there, quietly enjoying a dinner, so I surreptitiously snagged a photo that I decided to make into a painting.
