Regional In Nature

Art and creative resources from the western region of the United States.

Work painted, drawn, printed, designed, carved, built, and photographed.

Making My Way. Making Marks.

Tools and materials came early. A view of the times, nature and place moved me then. Seeing, feeling, and expressing shape,color and space was it. Being in the vast West stirred me soon to image. It is the same way for me now.

I was born very far from, you know, where I'm supposed to be . . .
so I'm just on my way home.
— Bob Dylan
