Celebrating arts in the Inland Northwest • • Northern Idaho panhandle to the Silver Valley to Moscow • • Spokane, Washington and surrounding areas
I'm FROM North Idaho, where I teach public school art, write about art and (try to) develop my own artwork. Before that, Montana (sort of), California, Pennsyslvania, New Jersey, Germany, New York, Georgia--some places more than once--and a bunch of places in between. • I'm FROM a life lived with art... the artwork my parents collected with meager savings, explorations of galleries from here to the east coast, undergraduate work in mixed media and sculpture. I've made a living with my art: marketing and design, graphic illustration, art, journalism, and sundry odd jobs that make for interesting stories but never captivated me as much as teaching, which I love. But, more than that, I've made a LIFE with art. • So I'm FROM a place where art is a valued thing, a hallmark of culture, an expression of our humanity in all it's peaks and valleys. I'm from a place where art is a way of viewing the world and my place within it.
