"Simple Heady is what describes the style, approach & serves as a reminder to myself, when all my heady inspirations are simply too much of a not-enough, somewhere in between the everything-nothing, experiments to balance elements of nature & human struggles, reality-visions, idea-feelings, & a spaced-out down-to-Earthiness, which draws light from the spirit sun, my 2 sons, my love, friends & family, craft & creativity, hand made signage & album cover art, surrealism & psychedelia, comic books & graffiti art, creatures & weird plants, skateboards & trains, grit & grime, Chicago lakefront sunrises, where I grew up, & New Mexico mountain top starlight, where I grew some more, surrounded by the darkness, where the mystery origins sound & formulate, a spark, an image, something I can catch & put down on paper, something that connects or communicates, something like this run on sentence, & something you can just look at for a bit." 


Working for over 25 years in a variety of artistic endeavors,

& open to  collaborations & creative projects.
