Occupation
Fine artist, Muralist, Faux-finisher, Shaman, Direct Intuitive, Psychic Healer, Spiritual Advisor, Reiki Practitioner, Ordained Minister, and Metaphysical Teacher & Lecturer
A little about me (so that you know I am a real person and not a spammer!)
From the time I was 3 years old, I have expressed an uncanny artistic ability to "move" paint. A graduate in fine arts and design from Pepperdine University, I have enjoyed national and international acclaim for my extraordinary use of color, light, and movement

Now living in Sarasota, I travel nationally and internationally, painting commissioned murals, canvases and faux surface treatments for individuals, businesses and organizations. From 1996 - 2003, I worked as an artist, muralist and journeyman faux-finisher in Bali, Indonesia where my clients included the likes of Cafe Lotus, Rioshi Japanese Restaurant and the Radisson Bali Hotel. My artistic finishes now also grace the walls, trim, ceilings and fountains at the renown Paris Hotel-Casino, the Mirage Hotel-Casino and the Venetian Palazzo Hotel-Casino Resort, all in Las Vegas, Nevada where I spent 4 years as a journeyman painter, muralist and faux-finisher.

Best described, my artworks are a cutting-edge combination of realism, surrealism and visionary art images. My life's mission focuses on the design and eventual implementation of a vertical farming mega-structure and a first-of-its kind, self-sustainable, eco-architectural “archeology” that has the potential to provide a limitless source of food, energy, and livelihood for millions of on-site residents.

My fine art canvases and faux-finish surface treatments adorn the homes of such recognizable celebrities as actor Dustin Hoffman and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, South Africa and numerous other diplomats and dignitaries worldwide. Clients, decorators, contractors and collectors call me a "master" at my craft and credit my images, murals, faux-finishes and architectural concepts as having healing properties.

As an artist-born, I am frequently reminded of how life is not all that it appears to be. It’s much more than appearance. In this sense, artists are really just tools, toys that Divine uses to express and impart Its needed information to the three-dimensional realm we occupy as reality. Artists are thus messengers for Divine on infinite aspects of Itself.

If there is anything I can do to forward your interest in the creating, purchasing or understanding of fine art and design, please do not hesitate to call on me. My email address, web sites and cell phone number are listed below for your convenience.

The things I like most about the Sarasota/Manatee area
The climate, the art scene, the opportunities here, and the tropical lushness -- all are quite a welcome change from the Las Vegas wasteland where I spent 4 years (2005 - 2009) painting faux images of the tropics in murals, sky ceilings, and elaborate surface treatments that grace several of the colossal, big name, Las Vegas Strip hotel-casinos.
My Interests & Hobbies
As a shamanic healer, spiritual guide and direct intuitive, I came into the world seeing auras and recalling vividly my former "Home World." In a near death experience (NDE) that took place in 1976, when I inadvertently drove my motorcycle off a cliff in northern California, I was pronounced dead for close to three hours. During that respite, I revisited my Home World and lived there for 155 vital, healthful and productive years. I then came back into my body here on Earth as an orderly in the morgue was zipping me up in a body bag.

My mission in this second chapter of my life is to unite individuals in an intimate and personal way with their divine truth -- that truth being that we are all divine eternal beings having a human experience, not the other way around.
Much of what I share may at times seem radical from the standpoint of normal belief systems and teachings on a pragmatic, spiritual and etheric basis. It appears radical because of the starting point, from which I guide people through their personal journeies to awaken to the Higher Self: "Heaven on Earth" can only be accomplished if we already know the heavenly experience. Thus, my guidance brings people to the understanding that each of us indeed does know; we have all come from the same source, which is divine (i.e., heaven).

My healing modalities include:
• Reiki
• Spiritual Awakenings
• Altered State Experiences
• A Course in Miracles
• Color and Movement Techniques
• Art Classes & Art therapy
• Aura Energy Consultations
• Aura Energy Drawings and Portraits
• Q & A: 2012 and Beyond
• Spiritual Counseling for Individuals and Groups
• Medicine Card Life Purpose Readings (i.e., What You're Here to Do)
• Murals, Fine art canvases, Faux-Finishing and Trompe L'oeil
• Unique Interpretations of Ancient Traditions using crystals, Tarot cards, found objects and the like

ARTIST'S NEWS

Among its many awards and acknowledgments, "Leper Beauty" (12 in x 20 in, acrylic on cardboard), was recently chosen for the March 2011 cover of TRANSFORMATION magazine. (See the Leper Beauty story at the bottom of this section.)

TRANSFORMATION MAGAZINE December 2010 Cover

TRANSFORMATION MAGAZINE featured an image of my piece, "Home World Uluwatu" (44 in x 36 in Acrylic on canvas) on the cover of the December 2010 issue.

THE PEACE PROJECT

"Home World Uluwatu," (44 in x 68 in, Acrylic on Canvas), was chosen to be part of The Whole 9 Peace Project to help war victims in Sierra Leone. On World Peace Day, September 21, 2010, the exhibit was unveiled at Gallery 9 in Los Angeles and then traveled to San Francisco and New York, where it showed at the Meridian Gallery on Powell Street and at Max Lang Gallery on 10th Avenue.

BRADENTON GECKO FEST 2010

One of my gecko designs, "Stars and Stripes Gecko Jack," was chosen for auction by the Bradenton Gecko Fest 2010. Then, while hanging on display on the exterior wall of the Merrill Lynch Building at the Northwest corner of 10th Street and Manatee Avenue in downtown Bradenton, the 6-foot painted gecko sold for $1,000 USD

WQ MAGAZINE First Place Winner

In 2009, my painting, "Leper Beauty," won First Place in the WQ|mag Fall Art Contest. This is a piece I created in 1999 while involved in a volunteer hands-on healing program at the Leper Community in Tabanan, Bali, Indonesia, Although the left-hand side of the 23-year old subject had been ravaged by leprosy since birth, her right-hand side remained unaffected. The painting captures the remarkable subtlety of beauty on her unmarred, right side.

Within 3 months following the completion of the painting and a series of hands-on healing sessions, the girl experienced a total reversal of her condition. The flesh she had lost from leprosy left scars -- much the way a person who has suffered acute acne has scars -- and part of her left ear remained missing. But she no longer suffered the stench nor the festering boils that accompany the disease. Research indicates that Caucasians possess a certain body chemical that may affect and alter specific forms of leprosy. Chances are this chemical in my body somehow contributed to the girl's miraculous healing.

Dr. Zae Zatoon, Ph.D., a transpersonal therapist and doctor in Natural Healing, offers another opinion. "Putting attention on that degree of attractiveness," Zatoon suggests, "The painting may have allowed the girl to glimpse her own beauty for, perhaps, the first time in her life. On the psychological level that links body, mind and heart, this viewpoint of a fresh self-perception may well have aided the girl's ability to muster the courage and confidence to live and to heal."

My piece, "Home World Uluwatu" was chosen to be part of The Peace Project from The Whole 9 to help war victims in Sierra Leone so that sustainable peace can be created there and beyond. In conjunction the World Peace Day, the exhibit premiered on September 21, 2010 at a press event at Gallery 9 in Los Angeles, and then traveled to San Francisco and New York in conjunction with a simultaneous online exhibition.

Are You Shaman?

Posted on July 29, 2010 at 12:00pm 1 Comment

Shamanism, the world's oldest spiritual path, is founded on the ideals of centering, personal responsibility, and loving respect for nature. Much like being a true artist or a bona fide healer, being shaman is an art and a way of life.

To develop an authentic, shamanic path, one must not only accept the calling; one must also be recognized and trained by a shaman elder.…

The Fine Art of Faux-Finishing

Posted on December 11, 2009 at 7:30pm 3 Comments

We live in a day and age, in which commercialism, minimalist artistic expressions and high-tech, fast-paced, copycat styles have become synonymous with "art." For all intents and purposes, the world of fine art has created an oxymoron of its own design.

Take a tour in a fine arts museum these days, and you will understand exactly what I mean.…

It nice to see kind people like you creating beautiful works of art and donating them out of the kindness of your heart. Theirs a certain feeling people get when they view a painting and to know your behind it all as the creator is truly a blessing. I moved here from SinCity as well and I know what you mean by saying the spirit flows here, the vibe is completely different in Vegas. Glad your here, thanks for bringing your art into the community! You give and you shall receive. <3
