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.

Upcoming Show - Recycled Art Sculpture

I am excited to be invited to work with Shad Hunziker of Our Planet Recycling on a sculpture during this event.  I can't wait to see what we come up with!

Kitchen Night Light

When the blender broke I thought it would make a great kitchen light - Replete with LED color changing light bulb, block guppies and slipper fish.

A simple push on the smoothie puree button illuminates the pitcher/picture.

(I was going to implant a sound card with bubble sounds or the sound of crashing waves but I figured any loop pattern would eventually end up bugging me or the fam.... but if I hooked up the switch only to the pulse button, that might work.  That way it would be a controllable, short burst of silliness.  In which case, having some random sounds like popcorn popping, fog horn, crickets etc. might take it up a few more notches of fun...)
