My work is about using portraiture, language and symbols as devices for identity, political and social commentary.
Appropriated or original photographic and graphic images are combined to produce “OP/POP Art” portraits and images. The digital medium was used in away where chance combinations of layers and blending programs were discovered & used like painting. I digitally dripped layers of images through each other producing one of a kind chance combination. Colors & images become available in ways not seen before, altering the visual perceptions of the images as they play with the senses.
The “Yummy” series is about the high rate of unprecedented murders in Chicago. It is centered around the image of Robert “Yummy” Sandifer, an 11yr. old killed by the very gang he had killed for. In this series the central figure of Yummy is composed of names of other children who have been killed over the years.
The American flag reminds us of the glorious history of the United States. My turning the flag upside down, and through the nontraditional use of the U.S. flag we're reminded of the historic imperfections which are a part of its history, and since the great majority of these youth are nonwhite we seem unable or unwilling to solve the problem.
Our minds are great at filing away all of the different information that comes bombarding in. This is why we can go to a completely new location and still recognise a door. We also file away negative experiences, so as not to repeat them. where this derails us is that we often file things that don't belong together. For instance, if you were attacked by a big scary man with a beard, your 'filing system' may put every beared man into the 'scary' file. How can you bring compassion to yourself and your filing system?
People who have been exposed to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) come up with 'natural genius' ways to survive their childhoods and make sense of the world. Let's look at a new POV about how an abused child copes and survives into adulthood. What if there's a good reason for that?
Each of us is a Natural Genius, coming up with strategies to ensure our survival even before we have the verbal language to identify the problem which needs a survival strategy. Many of my personal strategies were designed to "make it stop" whatever the 'it' was. I will share how to identify visceral strategies as well as a process I use to reveal, reassure, receive and release the 'scared child' components and leave an adult version in place which serves you without derailing you. If what I say resonates with you, the listene-call in and we will identify one or two of your stragegies and go through the reveal, reassure, receive and release process if you are comfortable doing this.

Shelly Roberts and Joffrey Matheson have watched friends fall in love and take that giant step—marriage—promising to share their lives together. Now it’s their turn. They’ve been paired as the perfect couple, according to Allanville’s Matchmakers Committee. Yes, their friendship has developed and grown. Yes, they are compatible, enjoy each other’s company, and want the same things out of life. Most importantly, they’re both seeking a meaningful relationship. Family and friends are excited as they cheer them on. Everyone is anticipating and waiting for the big news.
Humph, that’s a joke!
Instead, they keep getting sickening, whining excuses; there are no sparks…no chemistry…we’re just friends…you know, a yummy peanut butter sandwich but with syrup instead of jelly. The million-dollar question, how can you develop a serious relationship when you’re still carrying a torch for someone from your past? Where they do that at? In the small town called Allanville?
Interview with Jayne Merrill about her venture, Yummy Hugs, which is a great coming together of culinary artists, unique food and an important social mission. This wonderful co-op mobile food venue, will be rolling through the greater Los Angeles area in 2016.

Vision Board Posted by sundaypoem
I love to celebrate happy accidents, and I love it when my desires slowly start to manifest, so in acknowledgment of this strange place in my life I decided to begin work on a vision board. In case you didn’t know a vision board is basically just a collage of words and images meant to display your dreams and desires, but it can also serve as an inner roadmap to navigate your current disposition. I decided to use a sketchbook so that I could do a series of smaller vision boards, or a vision book. That way I can repeat the process often and track my progress, see how I am changing and growing, and notice easily which areas I should improve.
My first step was to go through some old magazines and cut out any images or words that moved me in some way. Naturally that meant a good deal of foreign destination pictures, really amazing shoes, yummy looking foods, and varying sizes and colors of different cut-out words. I tried not to think too much about this process so that I wouldn’t know exactly what was going to happen on my board—I wanted it to be a very organic, self-actualizing experience. Once I had procured about a thousand or so scraps of paper that I felt very strongly about, I went through them and organized them into groups that went something like this in my mind: things that apply to me in this very moment, travel and exploration, fashion, health and exercise, reading and writing, and home life. After I sorted my cut-outs into these six groups (which they naturally fell into without any planning), I discarded anything that I no longer felt related to myself or my vision board.
