Hello. Thank you so much for visiting. I’m an artist and writer based in the city of Pacific Grove, 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. Work that I can’t quite fit in these themes might show up in my blog posts. I invite you to read my blog, purchase art and leave your comments, too.

The Art of Cultural Subversion
Appeared at The Dalí Expo

The Dalí Expo (now the Monterey History & Art Association: Salvador Dalí) featured my work as the rotating solo artist during November 2019, including my painting King Sisyphus In The Underworld, as it did Karen’s in August 2019.

KRONOS, a fun interactive piece of installation art,  is the result of artist Karen Warwick’s creative vision and my collaboration. It was the centerpiece of her solo exhibition Time Flies in August 2019 — and continued to be accessible to the public in The Dalí Expo lobby for five-and-a-half months through January 13, 2020.

Original Art and Prints Are Available for Purchase.

Donations of Any Amount Are Also Welcome and Appreciated.
