About Me

My photo
United States
I am a multimedia, hands-on creative artist and poet with a San Diego based home studio. Having always been too curious and too creative, I have continually studied a variety of artistic disciplines and philosophies throughout my life with established teachers, artists and schools. This, paired with a life long investigation into spirituality, has given me a large "creative tool kit" from which to draw - and permission to (respectively) play with, break, challenge, modify, ignore and celebrate the rules related to the aforementioned studies. I am a strong believer in kids, family, individual creativity, community and our environment. Together, through individuals sharing their talents, amazing art can happen. I continue to study and enjoy all creative expressions. Some common characteristics found within my work are: re-purposing everyday items and discard-able things, harmonizing opposites, playing with current beliefs and assumptions with a whimsical twist, and delicately blending spontaneity with discipline. The end results are simple, balanced expressions of wonder and joy.

Taste



Life, a little sweeter, for all involved


                           when one chooses to

                                                               always
                             
                                               stop

at lemonade stands



                       - no matter how
                                  busy ,
                                                 late
                          or
                   inconvenient.



perhaps,

              even
taking the moment    
to 

  taste

and 
savor

the simplicity

A collaboration - the best kind of art!

an art video, amazing music, by a brilliant musician and soul. I am looking forward to putting a show together this winter where we project these creations by Clay on a very tall building - it feels like the best way to display and experience them - We are after-ALL Grand.



Sometimes art can remind us of our True self.

Beyond




                “ when i kiss You





i can taste the sparkles of the sky



feel the moon’s                                                   

slick  glossy  skin        
under mine            


                       thequenching of the sun





                        the clouds  slide i n  g  “








               i just want a moment to relax in You


                                        suspended in your Sea —



feeling its cooling touch


everywhere

inside me


through You

through me



                    where your silence speaks

                                            incessantly



   and you show mewhat  inspires    the flowers to open
                                   then to dry



          the birds to beckon




and why
