Background Information

Raised in the 50's San Joaquin Valley,as a college art major in the Bay Area, writing became important under the instruction of writer and English instructor Malcolm Wood.  During the war years, I had my own domestic war years going on, back in the valley, back into the conservative roots, raising a family too young and five different jobs.  After that, back to university for Bachelor's degree, worked in hospitals, studied Lutheranism, started a screenprinting business, and went into the classroom for career of teaching science.  During all this time painting, writing.  Major influences were witnessing the evolution  of the corruption of the public education system, and dealing with the helplessness of California politics. Being a fifth generation native Californian is one reason for not leaving this state, but there is beauty here, history, and mystery. How does one name influences, as a disillusioned artist?
