inspiration on the beach

Before I had ever sold a piece of art or made a print, I brought some paintings to the sunny Venice Beach Boardwalk at the suggestion of a friend. This is where my journey began!

Venice proved to be an amazing creative catalyst and small business training ground. Starting about eight years ago, it forced me to evolve based on people's boardwalk shopping habits. I started developing wallet-friendly prints from my original larger works - prints which now enable me to focus on my creativity full time.

I'll always remember Venice Beach and the interactions I've had with boardwalk visitors. Over the years they inspired my art and offered encouragement and support to keep creating.
