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.

Random Act of Arting - Grapevine Sculpture Shows at Nature's Gallery in La Jolla, CA

Loaded up one of the grapevine sculptures for a trip to the 
Ellen Browning Scripps Park in La Jolla --- a weekend get away.

Seuss~alishious trees adorn nature's gallery there.

The grass was greener than pictured
and it provided a nice background

Those visiting nature's gallery at the park came across the Random Act of Arting.

...the piece is held together without any adhesives or hardware - 
but employs tension and release to define and also sustain it's structure.

... offering a multitude of yummy perspectives.

(I like the black dot relationship)

The piece solely employs tension as a binder, thus holds it shape without the use of adhesives or hardware.

Contains one wire loop for ease in hanging."
