|Occupation||Bringing it all together, one blooming thing at a time.|
|Location||Taos, New Mexico|
|Introduction||I'm in essence a collage-maker, not only with images but also ideas and words. My inspiration is to contemplate connections among things and draw attention to them. |
I try to live by the poet Keats' concept of Negative Capability: "The ability to rest in mysteries, uncertainties, and doubts, without any irritable reaching after fact or reason."
Despite this, I do get irritable.

I visit the hermit clown and have him make me a magic shovel out of dragon bones.
