KVIE Art Auction 2014

I feel very strongly that one of the most important roles a craftsman can fill, is standing up in the community that I live in and taking responsibility in helping lifting that community up as an Artist that serves rather than a artist that expects and takes.

I seriously am rubbing Budda's Belly, making a wholehearted wish to get a better handle on how to actually do this with the limited time I have available for projects large enough to make an impact.
As part of the working poor, all I can offer is my hands, my talents, and my heart.

Please feel free to contact me about this work at

and/or get a rather secretive idea of what has motivated this series of works at my new Blog

Image Transfer and Carving

This is just a hint at why I smile...

Hard Lesson

The hardest thing I've had to learn over the course of this year is the value of stopping believing in someone that I love in order to force them learn to believe in themself. 


Unfortunately that someone was me....

Peeking in Our SideDoor

It ain't pretty folks, but happiness ain't always what you've been told what it'd be...


FireFlies Bones & Angels

Rolling through the mill...





 FireFlies, 
Bones and Angels


My kids have spoiled me rotten with their lessons. 
I watch them draw and fill space without expectation or worry about someone elses rules. 
Lines can wander, have secret meaning...
They can play...
They don't tell you what to see, they suggest meanings without being direct.



Mine the gold where we sit...
Isn't this what we went to school to learn?
