About Me

My photo
United States
I am a multidimensional, 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...unstable teachers, artists, schools and whatnot. This, paired with a lifelong investigation into spirituality, has given me a large creative toolkit from which to draw ;) and interest to (respectively) play with, break, challenge, modify, ignore and celebrate the rules related to the aforementioned studies. I am a strong believer in not messing with a child's innate curiosity and wonder, the value of family (however defined), individual creativity, community, and our environment. I continue to study and enjoy creative expressions-with the exception of acid jazz. 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 imbued with an invitation to discover more.

A favorite hang and home of The Spicy Jesus

One of my favorite San Francisco, USA places (and there are many!)
We stop here after a pilgrimage to the Muir Woods. The food is fine, but the visuals are YUMMY!

...though I believe he is actually smiling (that's just what I see...)

Which brings up a point:
Why is Jesus always depicted so somber?
He was/is a King of Love! - which sounds pretty happy to me.
(maybe he was missing a top incisor or something)
I might just have to make a portrait of him smiling.
I'm actually working on a mixed media portrait now of Billy Shakes (ie, William Shakespeare) smiling, with flowers in his hair and ribbons of prose... a little more accurate than the one portrait we're all accustomed to. He's looking more like the personality that wrote Much Ado, 12th, Midsummers etc.
Craig says that he is looking quite light of foot.
Interesting... it is the feminine nature that knows such passions...
and didn't Gwenith don a beard to hide herself from the bard in Shakespeare In Love...

Penelope Bluenose returns to Crazee Burger

Wolfgang invited Penelope Bluenose to return to Crazee Burger, but this time to their new location in Old Town.

... I wonder what her favorite burger would be.

Perhaps the ostrich with lemon chive cream sauce,

a pinot grigio
on the rocks

with a ribbon of smokey ketchup

she'd keep her pinky finger up
whilst dining
