About t4 Studios

Mission Statement

t4 Studios is dedicated to personal creativity encompassing artistic, spiritual, and educational endeavors. The purpose of this body of work is exploration, growth, personal and professional development.

Short Stories & Poetry

Some short stories published here are fiction and some are non-fiction, drawn on my own life experiences. Two stories are a mix of truth and strangeness. It’s up to the reader to figure out how much is true, and it is more than you think. All of the stories and poems are my own original copyrighted work.

Please feel free to let me know what you think of my writing. Compliments and constructive criticism are always helpful. If you are a print publisher, and something here interests you, by all means, contact me.


The artwork shown here is all my own original work. I work in oils, acrylics, watercolor, and multimedia. The photography is both digital and some scanned prints. Comments are also welcomed concerning my artwork. All images are copyrighted and permission must be secured in writing from this artist prior to use.

About Me

Black Diamond is my pen name, and for other matters, my spiritual name. I was college educated in the Southwestern US, although currently living away from my heart's home in the Southeast. My interests lie in natural sciences, fine arts, research, teaching, and writing. I respect the earth and all its inhabitants, especially non-human forms, and I continue a life-long spiritual search for meaning and value in life. I don’t negate the unexplained and do seek out the different.

About t4

t4 Studios was the name of my father's architectural firm in New York and Florida from 1962 until his death in 1997. My father was a creative genius in the realms of Modern Architecture and Mid-20th Century Modern Art. I memorialize his legacy by preserving the name, t4 Studio for my creative endeavors.

Peace….. Black Diamond, June 2011.
