Graphic Design & Photography Services

I work as a Print Production artist, specializing in organic and natural foods and sustainable products. If you would like to hire me for print design, presentation graphics, web graphics, or photography needs, please email me. I do not currently build web sites, but I can get you set up using and help you put graphics into your site. I manage changing digital content and create graphics for websites that are already designed. I have CMS experience adding content in Joomla and Wordpress. I have basic HTML and CSS knowledge. I license my paintings and photographs. Please contact me for your fine art licensing needs.

In the Studio Today... Wendy Gruber Auction

Saturday, November 10, 2007It was my great pleasure to attend the Wendy Gruber Auction last night at the Mill Valley Community Center. Rick Klein, Wendy's husband, presented me with the first Wendy Gruber Career Development grant. I also met some very renowned Marin artists that I have admired for some time, including Chris Adessa, and Kay Carlson. I look forward to using the funds to frame my work for my next shows in Marin County, at the San Anselmo Inn and the Tiburon Library. I will also purchase a backpacker easel, additional supplies for painting plein air, and promotional postcards to advertise my shows. Thank you, Marin Arts Council and the friends and family of Wendy Gruber.

In the Studio Today... Wendy Gruber Career Grant

Friday, November 2, 2007
It is with great pleasure, and humble gratitude that I wish to thank the Marin Arts Council and the Wendy Gruber Foundation for honoring me this year with the Wendy Gruber Award; a grant for career development in the arts. Although I did not know Wendy, she was an award winning, beautiful and young, plein air artist who lost her battle with Leukemia just last year. Wendy wrote, "I want the grasses I paint to keep blowing after the piece is finished". I am honored to be able to keep blowing the grasses with Wendy in spirit.

Please read more about Wendy and the auction organized by her family and friends to raise funds for the Wendy Gruber Artist Fund, which supports grants to artists, such as the one I am receiving from MAC. You may attend the auction or bid online in the next 6 days... online bidding closes this coming Thursday.
