Born in 1942 on an island off the coast of Oakland.
Grew up in the dry heat of the southern San Joaquin Valley.
Went to art school. Learned little. I consider myself self-taught.
Earned my keep taking short intense jobs out of Local 510 in San Francisco. Still a member.
Moved into my current live/work loft in 1986. All my existing work was built here.
