The Zendaddy Diatribes:: Yum-Yum-Cakes

I am a zen buddhist. With a shinto slant. I'm a messy buddhist: I drink, I eat read meat, I don't do prayer/meditations. Fetishes? Why, yes I do. Love turtles and wooly bear caterpillars. Also, into "bears" -- reddish-brown, facial hair, and with slight paunches... mmmmmm. Yum. And this whole *daddy thang*. No, I don't do leather, spankings, submission or the b/d/s/m crap. For me *daddy* is an attitude, a spark that one has about how to live life and how to let others live theirs. I'll be trying to achieve a balance and a center for myself... you're free to come along for the journey... should be a good one. I'll make sure of that.

More about me: I have been working (and living!) in the digital imaging, graphic design, performing and fine art fields for over fifteen years. I received my Bachelor of Arts Degrees in Studio Art/Painting and Modern Dance from the State University of New York at Potsdam in May of 1993.

My primary interests began in oil painting, drawing and encaustic painting with an empahsis on figural images in surreal and juxtaposed realms and architectural structures. Recently however, I have been exploring new areas of art by creating my own handmade papers and expanding my artwork by working in water media (watercolour, watercolour pencil and Chinese ink painting). With this expansion and exploration, I have moved -- only slightly -- from the painted human figure by studying, painting and incorporating in my art the animals on the sheep and goat farm I used to live on.<p>
