New pics of finished work from the 4Roads show are up in the Mind's Eye section. Mailing list and contact form coming soon. It appears the Lightbox galleries do work on an iPhone, but don't render perfectly because of no iframes support. Did we mention how fun it is trying to design a website for all platforms, including mobile browsing?

Gallery scripts updated again. This time it's been converted to Lightbox...much more elegant than the previous PHP version. New images have also been added to both the Mind's Eye and Mandala Series sections.

4Roads Gallery Showing
I have a group show starting on the 18th of this month at A Bon Port in San Francisco. The opening reception is that night from 7PM - midnight. My work will be featured along with three other talented artists, Joshua Clements, Dustin Olson and Chris Kelley. Please note that A Bon Port resides at 476 Castro, between 18th St. and Market. Hope to see you there! The show runs thru Jan. 15, so stop by whenever if you can't make the opening...

We've decided to upgrade the galleries to a PHP script which makes them viewable on the iPhone. Same pics, just with differently rendered thumbnails plus full image popups.

The galleries are now up and functioning.

Welcome to my portfolio site alpha version! Please bear with us as we're currently migrating existing content over into this new template. Soon we'll have all the galleries populated along with my bio and contact info. Right now I'm in Los Angeles promoting a show and will be back in the Bay Area soon. In the meantime, please visit the
old site for details on me and my art.
