Hail to the New Site
The Path to Living an Artful Life
My legacy site featured interdisciplinary experimental and conceptual installations & artworks. As a fusion artist, the medium is an instrument within an orchestra. I work in paint, sculpture, print and photography and within digital arts & new media I use sound, video, animation, projection. Working from Gallery, Museum to Stage, these works formed the bedrock of my MFA thesis.
The legacy site was a bread trail of 4,000+ files added over 20 years. It began as a portal to my web design services / user experience, art practice and included teaching tools & resources I created as a University & College professor.

ART as a Change Agent
Each week I'll focus on how the artful life took shape through the creative process with conscious and actionable purpose.
Topics to include: Food & Home, Art Practice, Being - Loving - Gratitude, Work - Home Balance, Perspectives & Stories
I'll share my shift from tunnel focus on teaching in art, design, web development and theater to life that is balances art creation, an entrepreneurial venture and a more conscious quality of life at home and in multi-generational relationships.
THEN: Medium + Process = ART
The Evolution of ART | Beyond Medium & Process
Work will be presented in a retrospective format of THEN compared to NOW. Much of my former work is comparitive as in a recent past event/social or political climate to a modern day problem/issue. Two previous collections "When Yesterday Called Tomorrow, it was Crying", and the "Blissomatic Surreal Project & Installation" exemplify the depth of work.
NOW: ART + Purpose = Artful Life
ART + Purpose = Artful Life
The focus of the NOW will shift from an art practice of global patterns to patterns on an individual plane. Expect a less academic perspective to a more practical human experience. Projects will include: reworking art, the process of making floating resin tables, painting my house over the summer with my daughter - sharing beautiful food on scaffolding, matching paint to hammocks.
