Artist. Writer. Photographer. 40-years a Vanlifer.
My early days in California found me roaming the coastline, living in an old ’68 VW bus, keeping journals and basically getting into everybody’s business. These days I’ve traded in the ’68 for The Escape Pod – a somewhat more reliable ’71 Vdub tin-top – and I am now much more of a voyeur, an observer, relying on the sights, sounds, and tastes of a place to gain my worldly experience.
After graduating as a photography major from Ivy School of Professional Art in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I went on to study for my B.A. in Studio Art/Painting, while dabbling in French and German as well as Congolese dance and drumming, at Sonoma State University in California.
I love the beauty of this world, and that includes even the grungy, weathered, beauty that comes from age and environment. I love landscape. I love peeling back layers – of time, of dimensions, of history, of color. I love making art and photographs and pushing boundaries and busting systems and supporting other people who do so too.
