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!
