Originally from Burbank, in Los Angeles, I now live (mostly) in San Francisco, California. 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.

Would you like to see what we did on Valentine’s Day? We took a walk around Fisherman’s Wharf , again. It’s becoming quite a thing for us. Won’t you join us?
It was raining, so I had to be careful with my Nikon. But I do enjoy watching flowers get a bath. The city was washed clean and the colors were a nice contrast to the grey stormy skies. See the entire collection here.
We got caught in the hail storm on our way to Clement Street for coffee. I didn’t have my Nikon so I had to make do with my iphone. Now that I broke my last iPhone using it in the rain, I have to be more careful. This is an iPhone 5 I believe. The sun came out on the way back home, just in time to catch some new blooms. But there were still signs of “weather” in the garden when we got home.
If you ever wondered, this is what I do with the pictures I take. I design beautiful items for you, your loved ones, and your home. Here are a few things I made with one of the flowers from the photowalk above.
A long title for a long walk. Won’t you come join us? We parked at Aquatic Park, and I walked to Pier 39 and back while my loved provided beautiful busking saxophone melodies for me. Since my walk took me too far from him, a few other buskers had to help serenade me as well.
I may have gotten carried away with the photos on this photo walk. Is that possible? It took forever to process these, but I finally finished. There were so many that I broke them down into categories, by interest, for you.
Here are the sea lions shots from Pier 39. Yea, I got carried away. Are you obsessed with furry adorable marine life too? This collection is for you. See them all here.
Of course I found flowers. Flowers must be my spirit guides. I get utterly lost in them. So, naturally there are more flowers than just about anything. So flowers float your boat too? Here’s the collection for you.
