About Me

I'm an artist and gallery owner in Southern California. I travel and paint, taking a small portable studio on my back. I've made plein air paintings in several countries on multiple continents and look forword to making a lot more. I sell , barter, and gift my paintings when i'm on the road. I call my adventures the EPIC ART QUEST and I write an accompanying blog on my site:
I'm super low maintenence, clean, earlier riser and work very hard on my paintings. I'm also pretty handy with tools, building, and organizing spaces.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm on couch surfing Because several of my friends have suggested it. It seems like a great way to stay with locals vs staying at hostels with other travlers.
