Featured on Saatchi Art Homepage Twice in a Row July 2015!

Saatchi Art is the world’s largest online gallery, connecting people with art and artists they love. I was thrilled to be notified in mid-July that my art piece Family Feud & Graffiti from my newest series Anxiety & Dreams was chosen by Saatchi Art Chief Curator Rebecca Wilson and the Saatchi Art curation team to be featured in their New This Week 7/20/2015 Collection on Saatchi Art’s Homepage, the ‘Painting, Collage, Printmaking Collection’. Family Feud & Graffiti is made with spray paint, acrylic, and paint stick on canvas with dimensions of 30″ x 30″ x 1.5″.

She is based out of Venice, California and was formerly a Director at the Saatchi Gallery, London, where she was instrumental in the launch of the gallery’s online presence. In 2007 she created New Sensations, a prize for art students which identifies and supports the most exciting emerging artists in the UK. Prior to joining the Saatchi Gallery, Rebecca worked for 14 years in book and art magazine publishing:she was editor of ArtReview, and before that deputy editor of Modern Painters. She has over 10 years of experience working with emerging artists.



It was such a proud feeling to have my work selected and exclusively featured on Saatchi Art’s Homepage. You can imagine what it must have felt like for me when I was notified a second time in late-July that my art piece Trolly Square & Traffic Lights, also from my Anxiety & Dreams series, was chosen by Saatchi Art Associate Curator Katherine Henning and the Saatchi Art curation team to be featured in their Street Art Collection. Trolly Square & Traffic Lights is made with pray paint, acrylic, and paint stick on canvas with dimensions of 30″ x 30″ x 1.5″
