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.

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)
