In the aftermath of the devastating 1906 earthquake and fire, San Francisco endured widespread destruction, including the loss of the historic W. H. Crocker House, which once occupied the site now occupied by Grace Cathedral. In an act of generosity, the Crocker family donated the remnants of their burned mansion to the Diocese of California, who would later construct a magnificent French Gothic-style cathedral on the same grounds. Spanning from 1927 to 1964, the construction utilized robust materials such as poured raw concrete and steel, meticulously engineered to withstand the harshest earthquakes and fires.

Through my painting series, I sought to portray the diverse facets of San Francisco’s character intertwined with the splendor of Grace Cathedral. Inspired by Claude Monet’s masterpieces depicting the Rouen Cathedral in Rouen Normandy, I embarked on a similar journey of artistic exploration. Over the course of two years, I immersed myself in the essence of this iconic church, capturing its emotive and visual essence by skillfully blending the nuanced play of light and color at different times of the day. My intention was to evoke the transformative experiences that unfold with the changing hues of morning, afternoon, and evening, just as Monet did with his renowned series.
