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.

Majestic's Canvas


























































































































moment's breath. there is only the sound of excruciating awe

in
as
and of
the everything



how is it possible
to be sitting
here and there

still

whilst inside

obliterated   
expanded   
and
consumed

O




it all comes from the same place
is made from the same stuff
returns back from itself into itself
            and back to forth
... with maybe a bit of rest now and then too

but not really




what a glorious miracle "reality" is -
so darn believable!

Postcards From The Path, San Francisco










I was inspired - Poetry Bombing at 
The Beat Museum,
 San Francisco, CA, USA







A nod to George Rodrigue with a little twist and glitter











Love the detail on this grate-ffiti.  (you will have to zoom in)
Fun to have spied this style around the city.
(Same artist below)













The Bay - San Francisco's Symphony Hall's loading bay that is.
I currently have a cone fixation as I am currently working on a silly series with them.  
I like how taking the vibrancy out of the color by going grey scale forces the viewer to see the familiar objects as part of a composition.  The texture and pattern is yummy and I can hear the Sesame Street tune "one of these is not like the other..." playing in the back of my mind - even though all the objects are traffic related items.
I guess it would be nice of me to show the original photo, but I'm not going to. One's mind already has filled in the colors, 
lighting a smile of recognition.









Like A Finger Pointing To The Moon




packages of rain for envelopes

full of sunshine
                                 that last a whole day through
       ...

you can sprinkle them 'round as you see fit:

sow them like clouds
sew them like seeds
                                   all stitched together

like a smile

less~ness~ing





All the words
they say Nothing

All the pictures
can tell no Truth

the thoughts, predicable thoughts
are thin -
            tasteless
                       and stale.


what is one to do
with all this glorious
nothingnessless


...to scream?
to shout from the bottom
of the toes?...



Eye sees You.

   I hear You.

    taste You.   smell You.

I can feel the every
Pointlessnessing

and giggle.




still

Here.

must one stand
oh so very still,
inside -
oh so painfully,   blissfully

pretendingness not to notice

...the first, 
and probably only time, 
EVER,
one will see 
easy glide dental floss 
paired 
with a faux clown fish.

Enchanting.
