Gold Leafing Workshop

On Saturday, April 25th, 2015, I will be conducting a gold leafing workshop at my studio in Laguna Beach. Reservations are limited to just ten interested gold leafers. I will be providing a package of gold leaf, a 10-inch X 10-inch canvas board with 2-inch sides, and a brush — and drinks and finger foods and GREAT instruction; while you are asked to bring an item that you want gold leafed, i.e., a frame, a rock, a statue, or anything that you own that you wish to see gold leafed. Reserve today to get address and directions. The workshop begins at 11:00 a.m. and will last until 2:00 p.m.

Be sure to know what you would like to express upon the gold leaf. I have painted many different things on top of gold leafed canvases, and above are some of the images for you to see so that you too can be inspired and educated to expand your creative progress to a new and higher level by learning how to gold leaf.

Call me at (949) 280-5504 to discuss your day up at the studio to be better prepared and ready to put your head in the gold leafing direction. Register in advance for just $80. The price goes up to $100 on the day of the event, so hurry and register now. Click the button below to register in advance.

Bellagio Spa Grand Opening

I was invited to the Grand Opening of the Bellagio Spas and Salons at Newport Coast on Thursday night, February 12, and it was a blast. I got to show some of my favorite pieces and the people there were awesome. I was interviewed and I had so much fun. Watch the video to see my interview.

This gallery is amazing, and is located in the heart of L.A. on Spring Street. I was included in one of the first shows they put on over 7 years ago and they have invited me back to be included in their EROTICA showing of fine art called “STITCH FETISH 3.” If you are looking for new, exciting, out of the box everything, this is the place, and I am proud to be included in this show.
