My Bio

Hello! Thank you for dropping by my page. Thanks to all my DA watchers and creative friends. Won't you please introduce yourself, and tell me what brought you to here? As you can see from my DA journal entries I've got some definite opinions about art and the creative processes of artists like us. I think it's worthwhile to contribute in the discussion.

If you like my philosophical views, or if you see original art of mine you'd like to own, please let me know here or through my website and blog. You can sign up for an outrageous newsletter, too, at emcanimator.com.

I'm continuing to explore the prospects of turning serious writing I’ve been working on for years into graphic novels that explore ideas on intolerance and inequality -- whether it be racial, sexual preferences or gender orientation, age, economic or social status -- and the process of discovery of one's place in existence.

My art is humanist, asserts and celebrates that people matter, aiming to champion the humanity of all children, women and men – and the natural universe in which we exist.

My art is subversive, using visual and literary metaphor to subvert dominant patriarchal and intolerant cultural practice, even if flying in the face of "popular" opinion. We create our own reality -- and the monsters that show up in it through abuse, abandonment and neglect.

There’s more to reality than what we experience simply through our immediate physical senses. My art is mystical art, describing through visual metaphor the indescribable, and making visible the invisible.

Art is my spiritual practice. By "spiritual", I mean whatever path one may be on the journey to find wholeness and meaning in life.

Comments are welcome.
