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.

Upcoming Poetry Publication

I am honored to have the poem "None the Less" included in A Year in Ink, Volume 9.

Updates will be provided on the publication date of the anthology through the Writer's Ink website and Facebook pages in the weeks to come.

The anthology reading and launch party is scheduled for Tuesday, June 7th at Cygnet’s Old Town Theatre, San Diego California.

A Year in Ink (YII) is an anthology of the creative work of San Diego County writers, published each year by San Diego Writers, Ink. The annual publication represents a sampling of the tangible results of our community’s diligent scribblers.
Volume 9 will include short stories, novel and memoir excerpts, creative nonfiction, satire, flash fiction, and poetry. Every year our Anthology authors are a diverse group, young and old, new writers and much-published veterans.
SDWI receives numerous submissions each summer; A Year in Ink follows a blind submission process; authors are not identified until the selection process ends.
