There is a great challenge in the alignment of creative passion with economic necessity. It is such a reward to now earn my living promoting local arts of Oakland, CA, my beautiful home. Since August 2015, I have been actively managing & curating The Gallery @ Panorama Framing in Oakland, California. We are currently exhibiting bi-monthly art shows of local artist with openings coinciding with Grand Avenue First Thursdays. In addition to the rotating gallery shows, PFI Gallery is hosts the works of 50+ local Bay Area Artists in our print shop. Join me in the gallery for an artist reception, a coffee, or follow along from afar via social media. Copious amounts of love and gratitude for the ones who continue to support my creative journey, successes and stagnations.
