My Night at the Museum

What does the ocean represent to you? That's the question that the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History posed to local artists here in the Bay Area. Hundreds answered, some were chosen. And I am humbly honored to report that my submission, alongside the works of very talented and inspiring artists, now hangs proudly at the Santa Cruz MAH.

Our collective works are part of a museum collaborative called Everybody's Ocean, a curatorial potluck of sorts that celebrates fine art through the subject of the sea and nature. I submitted my painting Tsunami From Underneath (2014), the abstract I created to examine and interpret the tsunami following the Japanese earthquake my family and I survived in 2011.

Admittedly I was a bit embarrassed to deliver my piece among the dozens of long-established and incredibly talented artists in the show. But I can only hope that my very personal painting adds another layer of depth and perspective to what is sure to be a successful exhibition.

I blush with pride to be part of this unique and exciting museum collaboration. I can't think of a better place to celebrate art and the ocean than Surf City itself. Congrats to the other featured artists - your works are truly amazing - and thank you, Santa Cruz MAH!
