Art and writing are the tools I use to come to —and to communicate— to the best of my ability, an unbiased and thorough perception of the essence of the human psyche and of the world this psyche generates and sustains. To be coherent with the independence demanded by this intent, I strive to earn my keep, as well as the time, materials, and tools necessary to continue doing this work, by selling the artwork and the books I produce. As you can well imagine, the present economic, political, and cultural circumstances do not facilitate this peculiar trade. Consequently, in order to complement scant sales I am now accepting donations from individuals who desire to support the work, but who are not in the position, or simply do not care, to acquire a relatively expensive piece of art or a hand-made book.
The price range is wide with —at the lower end— printed books and small, original (but unframed), paintings or prints costing between 30 and 150 US dollars. The prices for the more expensive paintings and stone poems, and the hand-bound books, appear next to each item. (If you find that this is not the case, it is because I still have not gotten this pricing task done, so, receive my apologies and please send me a note inquiring about the cost of the item that has caught you eye). Prices for lower- or regularly priced items appear below. All remote purchases will be transacted by means of checks and money orders. As soon as your paper clears, your piece is shipped. If dissatisfied with your purchase, you have 15 days to return it for a full refund.
I am open to negotiate payment plans and in some instances willing to negotiate the price of a piece. If you love something that I offer, but cannot afford the full price, let me know a bit about you and your situation and we'll take it from there. You can write to me HERE

All gifts of money are welcomed, no matter how small. Regular donations provided during a specified period of time (let us say $50.00 or 100.00 per month for a year) are especially appreciated, for they provide a significant measure of stability to this small and peculiarly vulnerable enterprise. Get in touch with me HERE.
Whatever your generosity sees fit to provide, through either donations or purchases, will facilitate basic survival and the continuity of this crucial service. Thanks!
