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.

Perspective's play with fingers, pattern, sand, and coconuts... sun and shadow and wind were left to work the rest out on their own (per usual)

...the wind showed up to too, but aside from it's visual effects by affecting the placement of the coconuts, wind just doesn't seem to ever photograph well - thus, it didn't make it into the title

...could probably have edited these to kick them up a bit... but I don't feel like it.

God I love this photo!

... petting pelicans is amazing.
