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.
