This will be my first year at SVOS although I have participated in several San Francisco Open Studios. I have been practicing graphic design and creative direction for 20 years, but have always done more experimental design and art in my spare time. Most of the work is abstract in nature and heavily inspired by music and writing. The results are a mix of acrylic paintings on canvas and charcoal drawings/collage on paper. For this year's open studio, I will have 5 pieces on canvas and a variety of smaller drawings and collage pieces.
