- 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.

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!

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.
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
