Through the years I have continued to develop artwasteland as a means to showcase my art and music as well as that of my wife Laurel and many of my friends. With the addition of our daughters Cammy and Karma we strive to promote all that is creative through other sites such as Futureshine.com muddymuse.com cosmicgroovelizards.com and javaheads.net
We hope you enjoy browsing our sites and hope to see you @ a show sometime!
