​Let Go and Let Goo features a series of mixed media painting and drawings made by the artist while living in Austin. Dense line-drawing, illustration, collage graphics, repetition of cartoonish imagery and color are used to communicate environments of inner dialogues including spoken word, sound mixing, poetry and humor.

Cloud Tree Studios & Gallery is located in East Austin in a vintage Quonset hut built in 1948. It has been a workshop to wood artist and manager of the space, Brian David Johnson since 2016. Prior to 2016, Beaman Metal Company operated out of the row of huts since the mid 70’s. Additional studios and a woodshop house local artists working in various mediums that contribute to the creative energy of the space.
