Originally from Los Angeles, I now live in San Francisco, CA. I found my artistic voice meandering between my early career in recreation and a later career in hospice as a Chaplain/Bereavement Counselor. Through my own personal journey of renewal, and through the companioning of courageous grieving souls (of whom I am ever indebted), I have come to realize how important artistic self-expression is to our spiritual development, growth and healing. Expressing ourselves is healing. Witnessing another human being’s journey through self-expression is also healing. Art heals. It just does.
My passions, some of which include photography, gardening, painting, and wood work, are naturally my favorite sources of inspiration and renewal. I fully embrace the life style philosophy of re-creating the mind, body, and soul through self-expression – and play! Nothing is more descriptive of play to me than creating art. Each of us enjoys the opportunity to – and faces the responsibility of – exploring and implementing our own means of self-expression. My hope is that we can share, and grow, and companion with one another along the way.
