I'm excited to be part of an exhibition at the deYoung Museum in San Francisco called the de Young Open. It looks like the museum will be opening to the public the week of Sept 22nd. As I understand it works will be available to purchase through the museum as well. It will be a huge representation of artists from the greater Bay Area, please check it out if you can!
I've got an article in this summer's issue of Juxtapoz, the bulk is taken from my boat log during my sail to Sacramento last spring, if you can't pick up a physical copy (which I recomend, it is better!) you can read the online version here
I'm honored to have work in a group show at the MarinMOCA. Thanks to guest curator Ken Harman for bringing my work in. With the possibility of the museum not actually being able to open its doors, they have put the show online as well. Check it out here
I'm honored to have a profile in the new issue of the greatest surfing magazine ever, The Surfers Journal issue 29.3 June/July. Please pick it up if you can, the whole magazine is incredibly well written, researched, and laid out with beautiful photographs.
I got a call from the folks with Snap Judgement Podcast to chat a bit about the similarities of living at sea on containerships and living in quarantine. Its a short and fun episode and I'm the third of the stories, give it a listen! (link)
I'm pleased to present a new group of paintings in a show titled Bends and Bows at Public Land Gallery in Sacramento Obviously with everything going on the show is mainly a virtual show at this point, though the gallery is taking some appointments for those interested. I put together this show with a unique challenge, to sail a 26ft boat from San Francisco to Sacramento and to create as many paintings enroute as I could. I brought a handful of recent works that were also done on short voyages on a small sailboat in the SF Bay. Below are some images of the voyage and the show that was a result of it. As a side note, I left a day before the shelter in place order went out for the Bay Area, and as I sailed upriver, things got more locked down into Sacramento as well. A very strange time to take a trip like this, I'll have to do it again when I can enjoy the culture of the delta more, there certainly are some small town gems out there. Please contact Public Land for interest in works and check back in the next month or so as I'll be putting together a zine with them, including writing and more photos from the trip

Man last spring was busy, which led right into Bristol Bay Alaska salmon fishing season, which by the way was the best one I've seen since working up there starting in 2006! I'm finally getting back in the groove of art and family, and it came to my attention that I had never posted any pics of my recent solo show at Park life. So here they are.... Huge thanks to the artists that participated in the installation that took up part of the gallery space. Contributing artists were: Alexis Amann, Stephen Amato, Corey Arnold, Ben Ashton, Matthew Bajda, Bill Daniel, Future Farmers (Audrey Snyder and Joe Riley), Carrie Hott, Robert Leeper, Patrick Trefz, Libby Wood, Kanoa Zimmerman, and film footage by SUP legendary sailor Arthur Thanash. The installation resembled the cabin for a fictitious sailor on a containership.
