Tom Applegate.  In his own words.

I am native Californian who has always been on a solo journey.   A non conformist who immersed himself into a world of art and adventure at a young age.  I became a rampant surfer, rock and mountain climber, a regular pilot transitioning to aerobatic flying. solo explorer and thinker.   Art has always been there and still seems to be hanging around.  Our entire lives are a work of art we all create.  Whether it be good or bad.   

 

I am not a purist sticking to a self indulged persona, trying to create a ball and chain style.  I create what I feel like at any particular time.  That is an artist I think.
