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.

Boules Queen Square ~ Drottningtorget

next to me
under a flowered bonnet
a few sizes too small
he enjoys
the sharp edged coffee as it dances
                      ever so often      with his gelato’s velvet glaze     

a slow,  sultry serenade of taste

he savors along - all the while
Van Gogh’s sunflowers are chain smoking ciggys on the park bench next to us
and the Herbarium is trying, desperately, not  to  cough.
(she’s so polite)...

I’m just sitting here,


          for a ride 

  pretending to watch the lawn
