Ladies furniture and display

This is my newest project with Goorin Bros. Hat Company. I was asked to refurbish and enhance this piece of furniture, then incorporate some kind of mural display and layout for the women's retail section. I had painted the hat ladies and gold leaf detailed, as well as did some of my lace tricks for the effect of vintage doilies. You can see this display in person at Goorin's Hat Shop on Haight Street in San Francisco.

Vehement sketch

Here is my newest sketch, she's titled 'Vehement' meaning 'opinionated and passionate'. I am going to try a new technique of painting for this piece by incorporating my sketch as part of the final painting. Should be interesting....

'Everything Matters' install continues

Tomorrow we are finally approaching the last stages of cutting, masking and painting color on the Paul Kos 'Everything Matters' installation project at the UCSF Mission Bay Campus. Our dedicated crew has spent many many hours cutting, pulling and masking. It's an incredible project to be a part of, and we are looking forward to finalizing Paul's intended vision.

Hat Ladies

These are a few new hat ladies. The black and white one is for a signage campaign promoting some vintage hand made hat pins that are now available at the Goorin Hat Shops. The other Hat Lady is going to be installed in Boston, MA at the new Goorin Hat Shop opening this month.

Paul Kos installation begins

Over the holiday season, UnderGround Colors, my custom painting and restoration company, started on a new project at UCSF Mission Bay campus in San Francisco. This time we are bringing to life the vision of the ever prolific artist, Paul Kos. The imagery is going to be applied to hundreds of thousands of 1 inch by 1 inch squares on the wall of the lobby inside the Helen Diller Cancer Research Center. The image's message will spell out 'Everything Matters' in an obscured pattern of juxtaposed colors. It is sure to be a very intense project, but we are happy to have such a great crew and to be able to bring this amazing artist's vision to life.
