    This piece was done in Newport Beach for the festival launching the 68th annual international yacht race. I recreated Bernini's Fountain in Rome complete with the center obelisk done in chalk over a weekend.
    Working in 360° allows many viewers to see the piece from every angle all at once. It was a huge success!

  • Tempe Center for the Arts 5th Anniversary Gala

    This was a welcome banner created at the entrance to the TCA's black tie anniversary gala. The gala has a tropical, flamingo, salsa dance theme so I chose Carmen Miranda as the welcoming portrait.

    This was a fun piece to do at the Santa Barbara I Madonnari Festival. Very challenging with the distortion of the faces. Had to fit a rectangular image into a square box. I think I like Lupita peaking in the back the best!

    I was one of 5 artists delegated to go to Xian, China to help launch the Olympic games and the tourism that was growing, by introducing street painting to the city. I chose to do an image of superman flying over the great wall of China and a portrait of Yau Ming, one of China's athletic heros.

  • Disney in progress

    While working on the villains I decided to change the image the second day. Originally there was a gold frame surrounding them and they were holding other "movie" objects. I switch this to a curtain that was being pulled aside to peak in on their meeting. I then wanted to throw humor into it and give them cookies and milk........chocolate chip of course!
