Prehistory

After doing time at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe New Mexico (studied with Fritz Scholder and saw Georgia O’Keefe’s work first hand), I did a semester at the San Francisco Art Institute, where I was introduced to the work of Kurt Schwitters and Larry Poons and learned the secrets bronze casting . . . and came to know David Zack. Zack showed-up again in the 1980’s in Los Angeles . . . along with the mail-art scene.

Wandered the halls of academe at UCLA (photo-etching and photography); Otis/Parsons (printmaking and photography); UC Irvine (photography); CSU Fullerton (computers); Rio Hondo College (photography and offset lithography) . . . all while punching the clock for the U.S. Post Office . . . swing-shift, graveyard and finally days . . . 20 years . . . Long Beach area.

. . . now I’m giving my visual perspective on this NEW world . . . some commentary on photo apps, and how I use them

. . . some “real-life” experience: 20 years with the U.S. Postal Service

. . . joined LinkedIn . . . and . . . and then after a bit took the link off the dashboard . . . no one ever had too much to say of any interest . . . and now people who had never contacted me in the past 13 years are asking me to link up with them . . . WTF ?!

. . . memorabilia of the gone world . . .
