I have shown the art work I have done through The Cultural Arts Funding Program for Individual Artists for the last several years at both MOCHA (Museum of Children's Arts in Oakland) and the Rockridge branch library in Oakland.

Also my own dolls have shown at ACCI Gallery in Berkeley, Ozzie's in Berkeley, Gallery One in San Francisco, Sola Lucy in Berkeley and Rockridge library in Oakland.

I have received grants from Oakland's Cultural Arts Funding program for Individual Artists for four years, a grant from Philanthropic Ventures and a grant from a group of city employees called 'City Stitchers".

I have taught 'Doll Making", "Stenciled T-shirt Design" and "Wire Art" at Cazadero Family Camp.

I am the in house artist for Hand to Hand Kajukenbo Self Defense Center in Oakland. Providing T-shirt illustrations and Wall Art for the kwoon (training hall).

I have been interviewed on NBC News 11, by the Monclarion on two occasions, and by the Oakland Tribune.

I am mostly self taught with only a couple of years of college art classes to my name. I was given an individual art show of my Life Drawing work at Fresno City College back when I attended in the early 80's. 

I am working in two separate disciplines at the moment.

The first is as an illustrator and designer. My work is bold, high contrast and graphic. This is the way I design illustations for logos, wall art and tatoos. 

The second discipline is in the textile category. Over the last several years I have been sewing dolls with children and their families in long term care at Children's hospital in Oakland (and a couple of years at Kaiser Permanente in Oakland). I have also worked with individuals (mainly mothers and daughters) making dolls, and have taught Doll making ( along with Stenciled T-shirt design and Wire Art) at Cazadero Family camp.

The dolls that I make with the kids in the hospital can be anything they want them to be. The doll can reflect the injuries that the kids have gone through, a cartoon character, a mythical creature, a beloved family pet or a physical manifestation of a drawing that they have conceived. 

Because I begin with a wire armature and make up each pattern as I go, there are no limits as to what we can create together. Sewing with your hands is a very therapeutic, calming endeavor.
