From L to R: Myself, Drew Zingg (Birdland All-Stars’ guitarist) with his son, Erin and Birdland All-Stars’ bandleader and drummer, Tommy Igoe, in my studio standing in front of artwork from the tour.

On April 7th and 8th, 2018, I opened my studio for the Spring Open Studios Art Exhibition, part of the Mission Artists Sprint Open Studios. I exhibited art from three series (click on series titles for more information and examples of each series):

1. Art of Jazz

My latest musical artworks fresh from being created live on tour with Tommy Igoe’s Birdland All-Stars.

If you’d like to see the next Art of Jazz live performance please come to the upcoming show on Saturday, July 14, 2018, 8 p.m. at Dinkelspiel Auditorium, Stanford University, Stanford, California. We will be part of the Stanford Jazz Festival 2018. Click here for more information.

2. Iconic Silicon Valley Places

3. Figure Drawings – From Life

I was thrilled to have the pleasure of welcoming Birdland All-Stars members to my studio:

Erin, Tommy and I with the artwork Tommy purchased for his home.

Myself and Christian Pepin (Birdland All-Stars’ percussionist) next to the drawing I made of Christian as he played percussion during the tour.

Tommy, myself and Steffen Kuehn (Birdland All-Stars’ trumpeter).

Laura, our wonderful Birdland All-Stars’ production manager Michael Oliver and I.

Spring Open Studios coincided with my birthday this year and I couldn’t resist sharing this hilarious JibJab greeting I received from my cousin Dave and his wife Shelley! It not only nailed my dance moves but even my 1950s rust colored suit!!
