Artists seem drawn to all that leaves a mark in life however small it might be. This mark might be but for an instant the way certain smiles flash glimpses of a person’s soul through the eyes. Artists seem drawn to capture prints in the sand, rust on metal, paint that’s peeling, and lines on faces. The artist in turn, creates an interpretation of the mark and leaves his or her own mark through photos or paint or drawings or music. Others experience this mark and are touched, perhaps even inspired and in turn leave their own mark. This is one way we witness the cycle of life in all its wonder. It leaves little doubt in my mind about the interconnectedness of all things….
Whether it's old paint on metal, rubber, or wood, the way it peels and cracks can leave a beautiful abstract image worthy of framing.
I'm an artist, writer, photographer, private investigator and an activist in small ways.

I visited the Tiger Temple in Thailand & later found out it is under investigation for tiger trafficking and animal abuse. Read full story. In 2015 it was raided. More than 100 tigers and protected bird species in Wat Pa Luang Ta Bua, popularly known as the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi province were impounded by authorities following complaints that the temple was alleged to engage in illegal wildlife trading.
"The moment one gives close attention to anything,
even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious,
awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself."
