when words fail me, which is often, I paint. When words work for me and are available on time, I am surprised.

Giant Horned Horse Ass Faced WORM

This is a collage of my family in animal form. I am in the middle. If you know my family you know which son is on each top side and exactly who the giant horned horse ass face worm is I am jumping off from.

Affective Rorschach Words

In transition these day - or was- This is an Affective component exercise of the Expressive Therapies Continuum I submitted and created as an assignment. I was amazed at how the images reflected the meaning of the words: grief, alone, sadness, grace, hope, peace.
Idea respectfully borrowed from Rob Tarbell.


In May or June of this year, whenever I would pick up a pen and begin to doodle(for lack of a better word;I detest the word for the activity)a Griffin of sorts would appear. I didn't know much about griffins and looked them up on the omniscient Wikipedia- amazing stuff. I am the Griffin, or at least I strive to be.

Sting of the Scorpion

I did this piece in crisis mode, I don't even remember what medium I used. It is a symbolic exercise where one draws their initials then creates an image from them. Awareness of form arises, a title is given.
