Hello. Thank you so much for visiting. I’m an artist and writer based in the city of Seaside, off the beautiful Monterey Bay on the scenic central coast of California.

Using visual media ranging from traditional to digital to comic art and text, I create provocative works that reflect my values of social justice and inclusion.

Following in the ancient tradition of the artist as a healer and guardian of the tribal community, I write and create images to subvert the dominant culture of inequality, and contribute to effect lasting social transformation.

Please click on the images below to visit the portfolio galleries of my visual art works. I invite you to read my blog and leave your comments, too.

Please sign up now for this outrageous newsletter, and get advance notice of my new works, provocative writing and upcoming exhibits of art. Fill in your name and email, and you’re only two clicks away. There’s no cost to you, and you can unsubscribe at any time.

You need not “be an artist” or “understand art” to sign up. This newsletter and blog is for you. The enjoyment of art should be accessible to everyone, not only to some snobby elite.

Why? Because just as a human being you were born a creative, you know — “born an artist”, whether visually, in music, literature, movement, woodworking… whatever. What happened between then and now to change that? I make art to reclaim the human creative spirit – yours and mine – and subvert the banality of popular culture.

Why is culture important to you? Culture is the “operating system” of a society. The most important ideas — good ones AND bad ones — are transmitted through culture. Right now there are a lot of bad ideas going around. Some, like patriarchy and the culture of “compete, dominate and win at all costs”, have been around a long while.

Creative activity allows people to see things in combinations and configurations they might not have before. So, find out how I propose that we — you and I — change the culture with the help of art.

Besides keeping you up-to-date on where I and my work will be and when – exhibits, studio tours and such – you might like to be “in” on the subversive action.

Want a peek in on how creatives think, and behind-the-scenes views of how art is created step-by-step? How about joining in on my rants on how creative activity can nourish and restore the crippling damage done to children by faulty parenting and educational styles? Just honest, raw, intelligent and opinionated, with respectful give-and-take dialogue.

Thank you in advance for subscribing to my newsletter and blog.
