Poetry. Art. Yoyo.

6/7/2017:  Don't hesitate to read my freely published chapbook, New Creations Out in Public via Scars Publications.  And if you want to support me, don't forget to purchase my up and coming poetry book, Alcoholic Murmurs, published through Unsolicited Press on June 14, 2017!  

My art is for sale, and I have many more pieces (including oil pastel) available than what I have on display.  I'm not begging you, but my contact information is readily accessible in the About Me section.  So let's keep that in mind, folks, let's keep that in mind. Prices are negotiable, and as I am a poor haggler, you'll probably get exactly what you want. :)

5/14/2016:  A preorder of my upcoming poetry book is now available!  Have a look, whydontchya?  

7/03/2016:  I'm making a vow to update more regularly, but you know how that goes.  Life events crop up after periods of restlessness, though I'm hardly ever inactive.  A day I don't create is a day I'm plagued with guilt, apathy, idleness.  But I seem to be making some progress. 

  • I am pleased to announce the publication of a poetry book in June of 2017 via Unsolicited Press.  They're a good organization, and I'm happy to have fallen in with them.  The title is Alcoholic Murmurs and addresses the pitfalls of addiction.  In particular, it covers the perspective of an addict as he attempts to rationalize his position with that of the society.  I will certainly be posting a few sneak peaks in the coming months, so check back now and again.
  • Additionally, I have an artist residency scheduled all through the month of August and part of September.  Programs will be offered at various locations in the Pike's Peak Library District(PPLD).  All studio hours will take place at Library 21c.  If you're in the region at any of the times listed below, you'd be most welcome!  Here is my schedule:

3/19/2016:  Wow, my first real update since I began this site.  I know, I know...shame on me.  I've been rather busy over the past few months.  Though I wanted to move to Portland, OR, I ended up in Colorado Springs, CO.  There is a good art community in this city.  I currently have twenty pieces hanging in the Pikes Peak Library District.  Cogstone Brewery and Peaks and Pines Brewery both feature my work.  I recently entered three pieces into the Fifth Element Gallery FLOW Show.  I have had some success in Denver's 40 West Arts District as well.  You can always check my Instagram for the latest news and updates.  I am writing as much as ever and publishing as little as ever.  That is, all the time and never, respectively.  Until we meet again!
