My Bio How does one speak of something that is beyond words? When words fail to impart the gravity of something one has seen or experienced?
I make art.
I dream. Of helping children get a brilliant education so they can make a difference in our world. Of partnering with communities in the fulfillment of environmentally conscious spaces for public enjoyment and as a model for practices that are in harmony with a world that requires balance and restoration. Of imparting esteem and partnering with the elderly to fulfill a dream.
And so I make art and speak.
"Emerge From The Earth" is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. All profits from Mandaravas Journey will be donated to Fractured Atlas: Emerge From The Earth.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
The next part of Mandaravas Journey. His experiences when he returns to his tribe and his life as a slave. We will discover that in his transformation he is perceived by others in a new way. He experiences the mundane as Sacred. Mandarava will have opportunity to be a companion to one who is a danger to themself and others.
Also in the works is a seven year retrospect of my creative work and a book about beads and what one can learn from them.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
Joseph Campbell, Henry David Thoreau, Kahlil Gibran, Gandhi. Follow the trail. These people are a great place to start! Every visual artist teaches and inspires in some way-Go. Go now and look at some art!
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
The Lotus Sutra. The Diamond Sutra. The Bible, The Gnostic Gospels. "Blessed Unrest" by Paul Hawken. -"Emerge From The Earth" required reading! "Walden" and "Civil Disobedience" by Henry David Thoreau. "The Prophet" by Kahlil Gibran. Herodotus.
