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.

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
