Artist John Kraft
Happy to share that I recently completed the above commission for a Northern Californian art consultant. The installation, which consists of eight 20 in. x 20 in. mixed media and resin on wood panels, has been purchased by a North Bay healthcare company. I'm always grateful when my art is selected to for the purpose of lifting the spirits of those that will see it on a daily basis.
I had an amazing time at the recent StartUp Art Fair in San Francisco. Thanks to all of you that were able to visit in person and those that followed along online. If you saw something there you loved and want to see if it's still available please visit my Secret Gardens Collection page. Thank you!
I recently completed the refresh of the San Francisco Heart I created back in 2010. It was purchased by a fantastic couple and they've had it in front of their home in Presidio Terrace, SF for many years. So, it was in need of some painterly TLC. I'm very happy with the result... The heart goes on. :)
Happy to share that I currently have a wide selection of my latest work on exhibit as part of the current show at Sofie Contemporary in Calistoga, CA. The show, Flora, Fauna & Other-Wordly Visions is open now through December 2, 2018. I'm joined in the photo below by Gallery Director, Jan Sofie and Gallery Manager, Scott Sofie. This is a wonderful show so if you're in the Napa Valley area be sure to check it out.

It was wonderful to see my custom triptych added to the permanent collection at the John Muir Health | UCSF Health Berkeley Outpatient Center. A big thank you to Renee de Cossio and Rhett Currier of Renee de Cossio Art & Design for including me in this project.
For my series, Fleur Squared, my intention was to create strong individual compositions that also spoke to each other in the larger context, much in the same way that flowers in nature display their individual beauty while commingling and communicating with their floral neighbors. See the collection at this year's FourSquared exhibition at Arc Gallery in San Francisco.
I recently had the pleasure of delivering my commissioned piece, Imagine, to curator Kara Lynae at Imagery Estate Winery. This original mixed media and resin piece will be featured on an upcoming release from the winery. It was a great honor to be invited to create this piece and I can't wait to see what varietal it's pair with for the final release.
Happy to share that I've been invited to create a custom piece that will be featured as the label on an upcoming release from Imagery Estate Winery. The piece shown here was gives just a hint of the palette I'll be using. I'm honored by the invitation and look forward to sharing updates over the coming weeks.
