Thank you for stopping for a moment to enjoy my artwork.   My mission in developing artwork is threefold; to EXPRESS, to EXPLORE, and to EXPERIENCE.   My ultimate purpose in creating artwork is to inspire insight that will help merge the conscious mundane with the unconscious divine.   I have been using drawing, painting, photography and video to achieve my mission and purpose for over 25 years.   I have been blessed with amazing teachers and education thanks to plenty of familial support.   I hope that you are inspired by my visions and transform that inspiration...more

Excerpt

I just bought my third Tough iPhone case here on pixels.com. The main reason I chose this rather than buying a blank case like an Otter box is my appreciation of art, and pride in my own creations. Is that ego? Possibly. It just makes me feel ... 

Reflecting on our past

January 14th, 2019

There are moments in each of our lives which define us, and yet they do not usually occur when we think they will. These emotionally packed instances are not always our moments of reward for achievement, like we might expect or hope. The moments tha...

Find Your Inner Piece

March 23rd, 2015

Have you found your inner piece? In the analogy of life as the game of chess, where do you stand? Is your chess piece equivalent to a king, a queen, a bishop, knight, rook or a pawn? What kind of stuff are you made of; hand carved from wood,... 

Manifestations of My Garden

March 21st, 2015

Since I bought my house five years ago I have been envisioning ways of beautifying the landscape and creating a garden. The previous owners, whose art form was restoring classic cars and installing new engines (such as putting a Corvette Motor in a M... 

We live at a time when those with the shortest attention spans have become the target audience for most forms of mass media. One of our biggest challenges as Artists is to maintain focus regardless of life's barrage of important responsibilities, tim... 

How Golf is Like Painting

October 6th, 2014

I love painting. I love playing golf. Is that so strange? The two have many similarities, and yet I believe there is a common belief that Artists don't play golf and Golfers aren't artistic. I'm writing this to challenge that assumption and hopef... 

My Mom runs Tri-Vally Investigations, a full service investigative agency in Santa Clarita Valley, California. She wasn't always P.I. Cookie Diaz, although she was at least an unofficial investigator. In my childhood, that wasn't such a good thi... 

Caught in Coded Chaos

April 28th, 2014

The amount of content on the internet is absolutely unfathomable to me. So many people have so much to share, how does anybody ever really experience any of it? The answer, I guess, is time. We all have moments in our lives where all we do is...

Whose Purposes Do You Serve?

March 30th, 2014

Am I a fool to believe that everyone alive today has an important reason to be here? While I find the idea of destiny very enticing, life experience has taught me that life is what we make of it. I don't assume that we are each given a specific ...

Two years ago I left a sales job at a small business where I had become somewhat of a big fish in a real small pond, only to jump to a company that was 10 times larger. If you can imagine, leaving a long term job with a steady loyal client base was t... 

Happy Independence Day! Do you ever feel like you are not meeting up to your creative potential? Have you a plethora of unacted-upon ideas filling up your mental storage banks? Like me, do you have any frustration or inner turmoil over your lac... 

Where do we come from?

June 22nd, 2013

What should I say to my children when they ask, "Daddy, where did I come from?" Should I first give my boys the scientific explanation, the whole sperm and egg bit? How 'bout teaching them basic genetics and teach them about their lineage? Shall... 

There is no right or wrong with art...EVER!!! Will people like what we've created? Do we like what we've created? Who cares!!! The reality is, it doesn't matter one bit. It's only art. It's only an expression of our feelings, right?...
