“Alternative Sleepers” came from my exposure to the clients using the Alternative Sleeping Location in Laguna Beach, CA. I have served as the over-night site supervisor at this facility since February, 2015 and as the clients became comfortable, I began doing digital and oil paintings of the more sleepless guests- with their permission of course.

I find the human face and figure endlessly fascinating. The connection between subject and artist is felt deeply and along with the artistic process itself makes each endeavor meaningful.  Below is a preview of the series, selections of which, are currently on display at the Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach, CA from July 5th to August 29th, 2017.
