"Contemplation is always a revolutionary act." --Beverly Lanzetta, from Radical Wisdom
Anything, visible or invisible, may be contemplated. However, some things tend to draw the contemplative eye more closely than others. My artwork, and this website, are created with this in mind, out of a meditative intention for all viewers. You will find here both visual work and poetry.
On this page are an entry from my Disappearing Journal and a geometric study. The header is from the Whisper Series. You will find these, with more examples of my work, in the Gallery of Visual Art.
Also, I am happy to announce the release of my new book, entitled There is a Story Here. Below is the cover and to the right, a colored image from the book. (Others can be seen under "Illustration" as part of my "Dreamscape" series.) The book can be found at http://www.blurb.com/b/7739666-there-is-a-story-here
I am a professor of art at The Art Institutes International, Minnesota, in downtown Minneapolis. I have been teaching college art for over 25 years. Here is a video that two of my students created when they interviewed me for their Digital Editing class.
No matter who tries to leave their mark,
The hills and dales are not impressed.
