About

Going With The Inspiration

Being a stay at home dad is more fun than I ever imagined. Every moment holds an opportunity to unlearn what I thought I knew, or to discover new things about life.

At first it was challenging to balance my artist "career" with my duties as a stay at home dad. Where did all my free time go? When am I supposed to find the time for myself, let alone the time to be creative and productive?

With time, and some lessons learned about "surrender" I have begun to allow the time to be creative to appear when it is time. Stressing-out about not having enough creative time is like missing out on the most important thing in life, the beauty and aliveness in the present moment. I am trusting that all will work out, and that everything will be taken care of...somehow.

Showing my artwork on Etsy is the next best thing to interacting with friends and art fans at galleries and exhibitions. I love how my work can now reach a whole new level of interaction with a global audience. I look forward to many new Etsy friends and collectors! Thank you for visiting, and for supporting the Arts!

    Owner, Painting & Creating

    I began painting in 2002 after a 300 mile hike across Northern Spain where I realized, "I am an Artist!" Except for a 1-year journey into the Peruvian Amazon, I have been painting and creating art non-stop ever since.
