I get a lot of requests to see more of my studio and my process as my work moves along. Here’s a quick tour of my workspace.

THOUGHTS FROM THE CREATIVESPHERE
"It’s human desire to be understood. And we always feel we’re not understood."
There is so much that goes into making art that can easily be missed when you look at a finished image. There are the the inspirations that spawn it, the epiphanies and breakthroughs that fuel it, as well as a slew of failures and challenges to overcome along the way. All to me are equally as interesting and important. This is what I call the Creativesphere. It's the magical place where overflowing optimism and possibility collide with the cold, hard realities of life.
Through decades as a professional visual artist and musician, I’ve found that our imaginations don't only fuel the arts, but everything we do. Whether you think you’re an artist or a creative person or not, the creative instinct is part of our DNA. It’s how we solve problems. It’s how we communicate and connect. And we’ve been doing it for hundreds of thousands of years.
This blog is dedicated to that process. The process of not only creating, but appreciating…attempting to understand…and finding ourselves in it.
I don’t know what to say

Another month whizzes by
Before you know it
This year will be over
Set to rest
With the rest of them
A catalog of memories
Squashed in a file
Somewhere in the folds
I wrote this as a companion piece to my solo show “I Got This” at Gallery 825 in Los Angeles. On view until June 1, 2018.
I Gotta Go Back
I gotta go back
Back before I wasn’t sure
Before disappointment got me down
Back before I had questions
And got all confused
Before I thought I understood
Before “normal” happened
I’m working on my new solo show opening in a few weeks. Funny how I think I can have an idea, but the art has a mind of its own. It’s part of what I love about being an artist.
