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.

Life, a little sweeter, for all involved

                           when one chooses to


at lemonade stands

                       - no matter how
                                  busy ,


taking the moment

"U Stand Before Me" (extended mona lisa mix)

.   Clay Colgin    .   Karen Soriano   .   J. Lonack   .
   Lyrics . Music              Flute                  Vocals

A collaboration - the best kind of art!

an art video, amazing music, by a brilliant musician and soul. I am looking forward to putting a show together this winter where we project these creations by Clay on a very tall building - it feels like the best way to display and experience them - We are after-ALL Grand.

Sometimes art can remind us of our True self.

Within Gratitude.
