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.

Yoga Class

Yoga Class

I wish I could explain how this was possible -
it took what seemed like a life time of openness,
and it re-formed with one quick motion of a hand...
I think it took only a second...
but, then again Grace is like that -
predictably surprising

Colander Chandelier

Another fun-foodie-light design with Dad, the master of electricity (gong).
I love the way the cords flow out from the main colander like noodles...

Cheese Grater Pendant Lights and Blue Cheese Painting

My Dad, master of electricity (gong) , and I had fun playing and making these for over the serving bar.
The True Blue cheese picture in the background came around to join in on the fun...
