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.

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
