Born in Boston in 1929, while my father was doing his doctorate at Harvard. Mother and I were sent back to the Idaho farm later in the year, after the depression hit, though we did return to Cambridge as soon as we could. When I was four, we made our first real home on the edge of the desert in Tucson near the University of Arizona, where Father began his teaching. I have been a wanderer ever since.
In 1959, I finished my BA in fine arts at Mary Washington College of the University of Virginia; in 1960, I did my M.S. in Library Science at the University of Southern California, and in 1989, I completed my M.A. in Arts and Consciousness at the John F. Kennedy University in Orinda, California. l spent about a year studying and working in the Findhorn Community in Scotland and have spent many enlightening months in Sedona, Arizona.
I have lived about half of my life in the U.S. of A. and half in Australia. Last year I taught transformative art at Mystic Mountain in Corvallis, Oregon; this year I have been in a retreat mode, mainly for poetry writing. Now I am about to leave Woodend, Queensland, for wherever I can find transformative art teaching.
