It must be genetic. My father was a photographer, my mother a singer. I have a brother who is a sculptor, a sister who is an artist, another sister who is a singer, and another sister who creates mad martinis.
I have worked as a graphic designer, an illustrator, and a long list of the usual odd jobs, including wildfire fighter, chef's assistant, school and ski area bus driver, newspaper columnist, pizza cook, hod carrier, short order cook, and art director.
I spent a lot of time outside when I was growing up, immersed in the natural world, and that hasn't changed.
I bike, ski, kayak, raft, write fiction and non, and am constantly intrigued by all aspects of natural history, science, and new technology. All of which informs, flavors, and spices my art.
