I can't help it. This is simply how I am wired. A natural synesthete with an ability to both intuit and imagine, there is much I can do for you. And if you would like to benefit from a true artist's visual intelligence and sensibility applied to your project/s, then I am your person.
I am a painter. I became a freelancer so that I could balance painting with graphic design.
I paint what I want, with no outside influences telling me what to do. This freedom with paint allows me to devote my design work to fulfulling a client's needs first. My ego in design is satisfied by doing the best possible creative work for someone else.
Painted Jay Publishing
I've even written a book on creativity... For all three books shown here, I am the author, designer, producer, and publisher... Everything but the printer.
Illustrated Lyric Poetry
My favorite thing to write is lyric poetry. Some of my poetry has been published over the years, but I don't spend much time submitting to journals. I enjoy doing live poetry readings, which have been temporarily suspended due to the pandemic. And I am now beginning to create poetry videos. See the Media page for more.
