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.

The Moment

the love voice calls out   its gratitude
and storm subsides -

             giving berth to breeze,

and in slender moment

contracting  the stillness  within

June Bug N' Jennifer's Poetic Play

Dad and I are at it again, only no electricity this time.  

...when I spied a pile of scrap wood from a sk8 ramp construction project, this is what hit me.

  fantastic  dimension   -- 
         exudes  balance 
            and   teases  gravity

...will be cutting a mirror to place underneath, filling holes and varnishing... more photos to come.
