Showcasing incredible talent and celebrating artists everywhere!
Most of my work is based up the San Francisco LGBTQ Pride Parade over a number of years. While no parade was held in 2020 due to COVID, I have 1000s of photographs from past parades that I use to find painting subjects. I try to capture the fun, joy, frustration and sadness in the parade goers. I hope you enjoy some of my sample artwork from this collection.
This series is based on the Castro Neighborhood and the fascinating LGBTQ people that make this neighborhood so unique.

In the 1990s a Castro Gym held and annual Ball to raise funds for local AIDS organizations. You had to come in drag. This series is from photos given to me by traditional leather men that did drag once a year and went to the ball. Like Cinderella.
