OMA Artists Alliance at SouthFair

From September 26 to January 4th, 2014, a collaboration between the Oceanside Museum of Art (OMA) and the Escondido Arts Partnership curated a show at SouthFair, the OMA satellite gallery in Del Mar.




“Flamboyance”, taken in Miami Beach a few months ago, was juried in. It was part of a warehouse remodeled for artists in residence. The twisted and unbalanced feel of the photograph was a perfect interpretation of the Miami Beach atmosphere.

In the Fall of 2014, I was hand picked to become a RAW artist.  So, what is it?

RAW: natural born artists is an independent arts organization, for artists, by artists.
It provides independent artists with the tools, resources and exposure needed to inspire and cultivate creativity. It welcomes all genres of art including independent film, fashion, music, visual art, performing art, hairstyling, makeup art and more.

RAW currently operates in nearly 60 cities across the United States, Australia, Canada and, now London!

raw1This was a one time event and it was such a fun night full of entertainment, creativity and feelings of genuine support and community!!  60 artists of all genres as well as several hundreds of people attended the event.



Once you belong to RAW you are invited to display your art in any city RAW is having a show, all over the US, Canada, and England.

As a visual artist, I was given a space and a board 4′ x 8′ to use as I wished.

Cards were exchanged, art was sold, and friendships started.


As a RAW artists, I was offered photos by a professional, as well as a videotaped interview that I can use as promotion.

Photo Arts Group Revisited

The Photo Arts Group (PAG) pushes me to print from my large body of work and to experiment with new ideas.

October 2014 “Good Night Moon” show (night photography).  I shot this one in Miami, FL in 2014. I spent several weeks walking around this amazing foreign city with American infrastructure.
