“God is an artist, when we are at our most creative, we are the most in touch with the Divine” – One of the Kashmir Shaivism sages









I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Arts from Whitman College, Walla Walla, Washington, USA, graduated 1994. 

My visual art focus is oil/acrylic painting and ceramics.

I have spent the last eighteen years creating and exploring the visual arts of the world. I’ve studied Chinese painting in Kunming, Yunnan Province, Peoples Republic of China and oil painting/ceramics in Florence, Italy, at Studio Arts Centers International.

From 2000-2010, I was co-owner and co-creator of Airspeed Skateparks LLC.  I and my partner designed and built functional concrete sculptures around the world: the USA, Mexico, Ireland, Nepal and South Africa.  I often painted large-scale murals on these concrete works– for more information please purchase the documentary film by Irish filmmaker David Keating:  KM 64 .

I’ve shown in individual and group shows in Brazil, Italy, Mexico and the USA.

Today, I continue to paint and work with clay, but writing is now at the forefront of my artistic efforts.  But I can’t help myself– I make visual art as inspiration demands and in between novel rewrites. Recently, I’ve made Portuguese tiles and mantra infused ceramic japa malas and painted a series of mandalas and tropical fruit pieces.

I have a 60 x 100 canvas resting next to my writing desk– awaiting paint!
