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.

Prayer Flags - Wild Animal & Pet Memorial for Wildfires


I was honored and deeply moved through participating and performing during two animal memorials for southern California fires this summer.

Thank you Sally Zito for the gift of the opportunity to manifest some powerfully healing art to your amazing music during the ceremonies.

A pleasure to meet and get to spend some time together with your kind soul Lisa Levinson, of In Defence of Animals.


I fashioned prayer flags - during the second ceremony, I was able to use charcoal from the trees of attendee's property.

During the performance, a big chunk of charcoal broke in half and a green, golden spider popped out and slowly strolled across the canvas - I was awash with joy.









This giant prayer flag was given to Charlie Toledo of the Soscol Inter-Tribal Council  it will hang on her property.
