I make abstract paintings and mixed-media works that use geometric and biomorphic forms to explore scale, repetition, and perspective, and to discover new visual languages to describe perception.
Joshua Coffy is a self-taught artist living and working in San Francisco. He grew up in a variety of locales from Ohio to New Mexico to Florida and finally California. Moving from one region to another helped to shape his cultural views of the world as well as inspire him to create art in unique and varied ways.
As a teacher, I create an environment in which students are responsible and empowered while they investigate different mediums and skills to help them think both creatively and actively.
Oakland painter Lorrie Fink interprets images she has collected from the natural world, using the expressiveness of botanical and geologic forms to investigate pattern and color. With her studio located in her garden, she is surrounded by the bounty of nature.

My work looks to connect the observer to water; to transport them to a place of spirituality and sublimity, much like the works of Anselm Keifer and Cy Twombly, two artists I admire. By creating stirring, emotional paintings of water I hope to emphasize our collective awareness of the importance of water, one painting at a time.
I make bright colored collage works that employ a meticulous assemblage of found papers often bound together with looping brushstrokes.
Croque debris translates to “debris sketch”. I coined the term in 2014 with the help of my artist friend Chantal Fournier of Quebec, Canada. After my morning walk, run or workout, I would find a leaf with an interesting shape or color and commit to a 45-minute- to hour-long watercolor painting.
