ARTIST / EXPLORER
I love the ocean. I love being in, on, or near the sea. When I’m on land, my favorite place is the coast—the intersection of ocean and earth. I love standing right at the edge where the fluid world and terra firma meet. Sometimes the union is chaos, with massive ocean waves crashing into seemingly unyielding granite cliffs. Sometimes it’s sweet, a shiny ribbon of water caressing the sandy shoreline. No matter what, it’s always interesting. And often awe-inspiring.
I love traveling and exploring new places. I have visited six continents, covering millions of kilometers by land, air, and on foot. I venture by boat, by tuk-tuk, by rusty rented bicycle and even by oxcart. At least two of my expeditions, one in the USA and one in Iceland, were by RV, which is kind of like driving a barn with wheels. The traveling part is often very un-sexy, but I’m sure you’re familiar with the old saying, “It’s part of the adventure.” It’s true. I try to embrace this way of thinking, even when flights are delayed, or when the ox is moving at a snail’s pace. I get there, eventually.
