Bio: I am an artist and writer specializing in historical art and non-fiction. I produce pen-and-ink drawings—mainly of old equipment, historic structures, and other culturally significant sites. My home is in Fairbanks, and for 30 years I've been tramping the back roads of Interior Alaska, documenting (through photos, sketches and notes) its mining camps, homesteads and other sites before time, vandals and development erase them from the landscape. For the past 3 ½ years I have also been writing a column in the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner about historic sites around Interior Alaska. In September of 2011 I received the Alaska Historical Society's "Contributions to Alaska History Award" for my column. I just published a book entitled "Interior Sketches – Ramblings around Interior Alaska historic sites," which includes the first 2 ½ years of my column.
