The perfect way to kick off your Halloween weekend!
Sherlock Holmes is missing and the streets of London are awash with crime… who will save the day? The Baker Street Irregulars—a gang of street kids hired by Sherlock himself to help solve cases! Now they must band together to prove not only that Sherlock is not dead but also to find the mayor’s missing daughter, untangle a murder mystery, and face the masked criminal mastermind behind it all. Can a group of orphans, pickpockets, inventors, and artists rescue the people of London? The game is afoot!

Q & A with the artist. on Zoom or Facebook Live

I am a painter and designer living and working in critical dialogue with a cultural environment of instant access and over-stimulation. My paintings allow the viewer to move beyond the casual glance and allow us both to get intimate with the subjects. Painting is a tool to inspire, communicate, investigate, and critique. With my work, I am constantly growing, deepening, shifting, and growing my technique to better understand the cultures and environments around me.

When I place paint on the canvas and it illuminates, that moment is why I paint. The play of light, bold colors and paint strokes excites my process of creating mini abstract paintings within the larger realistic painting. Painting loosely allows me freedoms without completely sacrificing form to build realistic subjects. I have a fondness for mysterious atmospheric night scenes and extraordinary people who can say everything in one look.
