I’ve just finished a massive update of my artist portfolio. Under “paintings,” you’ll find dozens of new images, all organized by series. Plus under “illustrations,” you’ll find an entirely new third page of traditionally rendered illustrations that include some of my favorites—created with either watercolors or colored pencils. Additionally I’ve organized my digital illustrations into categories to make browsing easier. Click here to have a look!
Here are some recent pictures from my art show at the Weisman museum!

My art is up in the Weisman museum, and there have been a steady stream of visitors thus far! Today is the artist reception, and I just came across the press release for the exhibit:
New Exhibit Opens at the Weisman Museum
Portfolio of Creative Work, a new exhibit featuring drawings, paintings, and photography from members of the Pepperdine Public Affairs team, will be on display at the Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art Wednesday, Apr. 30, through Friday, May 2.
The Pepperdine community and general public are invited to meet the artists at a reception on Thursday, May 1, from 12 noon to 1:30 p.m. in the Gregg G. Juarez Palm Courtyard adjacent to the museum.
The exhibit showcases works of art from 10 members of the Public Affairs team. Featured artists include Maz Ameli, graphic designer; Jerry Derloshon, director of Public Relations and News; Rick Gibson, associate vice president for public affairs; Allen Haren, multimedia producer/broadcast engineer; Lyric Hassler, senior public relations advisor; Keith Lungwitz, senior art director; Matthew Midura, executive director of University Communications; Brett Sizemore, director of Creative Services; Gayle Wheatley, art director; and Vincent Way, manager of Editorial Services.
“The featured works in this exhibit range from rich photography to rendered illustration to engaging canvases, demonstrating a wide range of artistic prowess among the Public Affairs team,” Sizemore said. “We are very proud to have this opportunity to exhibit in such a prestigious venue as the Weisman.”
The Weisman Museum, located on the University’s Malibu campus, is open Tuesday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and is closed on Mondays and major holidays. There is no admission charge.

Here’s an excerpt about me from the artist’s catalog that was published for the exhibition:
“Since my art is heavily influenced by the
destinations I’ve traveled to, my paintings are
filled with cultural references that are combined
to form a rich visual language. Additionally,
inspired by the years I spent in Japan, my compositions and line
work reflect the influence of ukiyo-e, while conceptually exploring the
relationship between unique distinctions and the ordinary.”
I hope to see you at the museum!
Saturday’s gallery show was a big success…I sold some work and met some amazing artists, Harry Carmean among them–who trudged all the way out from his studio near Palmdale for the evening!! The exhibit was a blast. And many thanks to all those that came out to my show! Visit my BLOG to check out my newest painting, “Mr and Mrs Owl”, which debuted Saturday.
