Displaying Japanese Paper in the Gallery Setting.

I prefer to hang the Cathedral Suite prints in a gallery setting unframed, against a grey wall. Sekishu, the paper I print on, sways back and forth with breath-like beats, inviting one closer to examine the artwork. One can sense the translucency of the paper’s thinness, as portions of the image wave in and out of focus. 

Cathedral Suite prints shown here are photographed as on display during a month long exhibition at the Telegraph Hill Gallery, San Francisco, CA. 

Join Me for the Raw Artist Event in Downtown San Jose!

I am a featured artist at the Raw Artist Event on Wednesday, November 19, 2014 at 08:00PM at the Motif Cocktail lounge! The Raw Artist movement is a grassroots and multidisciplinary one, exhibiting emerging artists working within the visual arts, dancing, film and fashion. Being a a part of Raw Artists is exciting both as an artist and an audience goer because in one night you are introduced to a network or local artists within your community working across different disciplines. 

Tickets to the event are $20, but can be purchased for $15 by clicking on my promo link below . Hope to see you at the show! 


I Am Now Part of the Cubberley Artist Studio Program in Palo Alto.

I’m so excited to announce that I am officially part of the long-term (5 years) residency program at Cubberley Artist Studios in Palo Alto! At Cubberley, I will continue my studio practice as a printmaker with 23 other artists in single and shared studio spaces. In addition to having a working space, I’ll host open studios, printmaking and drawing workshops, facilitate lectures and artist panels, and participate in group shows. 

The move to the studio begins in October, which might give me enough time to decide whether or not the etching press stays in the home studio or comes with me to the heart of Silicon Valley. 

My studio today, with the Conrad Etching Press.
