About Dave

I’m an artist, musician, and writer, and I get a lot of my inspiration from my adventures traveling to interesting places.

I’m passionate about anthropology, which is to say, I want to understand the human experience and this thing that we call culture. My explorations into the diverse cultures of the world have inspired me to make artwork and music about the people and places I have seen. I’ve also written and illustrated two books about my time living in West Africa, where I studied traditional music styles over the past decade and a half.

My artwork and music are a means for me to tell stories about the diverse world in which we live. I have traveled well off the beaten path to find these stories, and I am pleased to share them with you in my projects and latest artwork. My hope is that they can add something of value or interest to what it means to be human, and alive, on this magnificient Earth.

This website serves as a repository for my ideas and creations as I continue along the path that started some forty years ago when I made my first drawing.
