8 months of planning and 50 hours of installation led up to the opening reception of Arousing Biophilia. This exhibit has been a labor of love and the opening reception exceeded all of my expectations. Despite the pouring rain and bad parking the place was full of wonderful people excited about the art and artist. The exhibition will be on view until April 22nd and Art Ark Gallery will be open from 11am-3pm the following dates: March 3rd, 9th, 10th, 23rd, 24th, 30th, 31st and April 7th, 13th, 14th, 20th, 21st For private tours on other days you can contact me directly at – firstname.lastname@example.org

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation Heroes and Hearts luncheon at AT&T Park. It’s always such a wonderful event for a great cause. I was there because I was one of the heart artists. I created a large heart titled Tree of Life that was purchased by Wells Fargo. This is the third heart I have created for the SFGHF and my hearts have raised over $150k for the foundation. I am honored to be part of such an important organization. Another cool thing was that Wells Fargo has a mural outside of the office in SF that includes a big picture of my heart.
