I create art.

I am an artist, through dance, written word, symbolism, rhythm, movement – my artistic-playground extends across mediums and sometimes bridges them. I am constantly evolving and growing beyond my borders as an artist, welcome to my journey, I hope you enjoy the ride as much as I do!

“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.” Pablo Picasso

I believe that art heals humans in weird, mysterious, and wonderful ways. Whether we are the artists, or the audience. I believe that when an artist connects to themselves, and creates from their well, their Source, they are truly tapping-in to something not only greater than themselves, but also to something needed by more than themselves; regardless of the medium.

For me, I paint because the doing of it – the process of the work is taking me to the next point along my journey; not dissimilar to writing, painting assists me in untangling my thoughts, sensations, and emotions.

The only rhyme or reason here is my connection to Spirit; as my teachers, lessons, games, and messages – all in the guise of animals, numbers, symbols and so much more. The World is alive around us, and my art is me, interpreting all of the subtleties.

Pelicans

Pelicans

I have a mad-love for them. Not only are they something akin to dinosaurs, but they are the state bird of Louisiana, which has always just made me feel protected – I know, weird, right? Enh, maybe, but in my adult-life as I learned about animal spirits and their energies, all of the things I learned about pelicans just confirmed all of my little-kid feelings about safety, and balance, and profound calm. HUGE birds that don’t get buffeted around easily and just look like everything’s a piece of cake.

Again, mad-love. On many levels. So I created this flock of pelicans with the hope that as they wing out into the world they can share a bit of their buoyancy and infuse their surroundings with calm.

Each pelican is unique. An original stencil design, spray-painted on a hand-cut, roughly rectangular, prepared sheet of 100lb Bristol paper, finished for light-fastness. Sizes vary – 12.5-14.5″ wide by 26.5-33″ tall.

Should you be interested, these are the artists with whom I’ve had the pleasure and honor of studying so far:

Ardith Goodwin, Chris Zydel and her Wild Heart Creative retreats, Connie H. Solera of Dirty Footprints Studio and Jeanne Bessette.

I have the fortune to be part of many circles, including a FaceBook group called “Boom Brigade,” headed up by Fabeku Fatunmise. He’s got a pretty big heart and enjoys sharing where he can. In his most-rockin’ generosity, he gave a free talk on the importance of Art and Artists, as well as Artists as Magicians – the only charge for the listen is to share this link as far and wide as possible. And my friends,it’s a pretty freakin’ inspirational listen, here, check it out.
