Andreina is awesome!!

I was very fortunate to win the Word In Your Hand weekly contest a while back, and was offered a choice of several tempting prizes. I chose the one I absolutely couldn't resist, a fine art giclee print from Andreina, Manny's incredibly talented wife.

I am so excited to own it! It came beautifully packaged, and now I'm just deciding where I want to put it. So many choices! Here's a detail shot of the print... I love the textures she creates. …

diabetes 365 day 2 October 5th, 2007

I started a new project: one diabetes photo a day for a year. And since I have diabetes, I figure just about any photo qualifies as a diabetes photo! Anyways, I hope you'll drop in now and then to see it's progression, and if you'd like to join me and start your own project, I hope you'll let me… Continue

Drop by my blog, In Search of Balance ... the piece I made for a recycled art show out of old insulin bottles is on the front page of the entertainment section of our local paper! What a surprise!

I have just recently enetered this new domain called "being diabetic". I thinking i want to just say I have diabetes not that the diabetes has me.
I am an award winning sculptor in addition to being an energy expert and a university faculty member teaching in the UC College of Engineering and Applied Science.

Here is my sculpture website. IT is a little sketchy but it gives you an sample of what I do and have done.
