i'm doing my

home work...

… and I want to share it with you! 


I draw what I think and see.  It's sort of like scribing, and a little like painting. 


It's spring already in Brooklyn, and I am continuing my adventure as a teacher and artist.   I still believe in hope.   And abiding love.  And making art.  And listening to each other.

Breathe.  Make beauty in your life.  Give whatever you can.
