About Jeff:

I’m an abstract artist working mainly with ink, whether on paper, a woodcut print, or mixed media.

 

I’m particularly interested in art-making as spiritual practice, and I blog about the intersections of Buddhism, art, and life as a (recently-retired) religious studies professor with Asperger Syndrome.

 

I address questions like, “How is art-making spiritual? And what does Asperger’s have to do any of this?”

 

I haven’t always been an artist. But it’s who I am at the core of my being.

 

I say more about how I started drawing and whether I consider my work to be “spiritual” in a short essay,“Mandalas, Meditation, and Mindful Mark-Making.”
