I just had a terrific show in Thousand Oaks, California!

Conejo Valley Art Museum Artwalk 2008

The 2008 Conejo Valley Art Museum Artwalk, held June 7-8, was filled with a broad array of high end art, fine crafts, tasteful live music, and a wide variety of tasty food options. Tables and chairs, shaded with umbrellas, were scattered throughout the site allowing patrons to rest their feet wherever they chose.

There were some 170 artists showing their work at the festival. Including, of course, me! There’s my booth, above, the second from the left.

I was lucky enough to be awarded a ribbon for second place in my category, “oils & acrylics”.

If you can get to Thousand Oaks next June, I highly recommend this as one of southern California’s premier art festivals. And I’m not just saying that because I got a ribbon! This is a visually stunning show. I was honored to be there.

You can see my upcoming shows here.

I'm an artist. I make paintings with dots.

I work in acrylic paint, in a couple of distinct styles: landscapes and abstracts.

Native to California, I've lived elsewhere and only recently returned to my home state. I now live in Los Angeles.

I mostly show my art in outdoor festivals in California. I also occasionally show my work in art galleries or open studio events. You can see an up-to-date list of upcoming shows on my website (click here).

I invite you to sign up to receive my free email newsletter, in which I list my upcoming shows and talk about my latest work. I send it irregularly, a few times a year.
