To me, my art and being nude are inseparable. I have been painting and drawing since I could first pick up a pencil. I do figure drawing, storyboards, portraits and illustrations, including perspective drawing. I knew I wanted to be a nudist when I saw a documentary on TV about a nudist family at Glen Eden Sun Club in CA when I was ten & got my first look at a nudist magazine around the same time. I knew this was who I was meant to be and these were the type of people I that I belonged with. 12 years passed. My dream of going to a resort didn’t happen until 1979 when to my ex-wife and I went to Elysium Fields in Topanga, CA. I taught a figure drawing group there and at Glen Eden I drew comics for their newsletter The Glen Eden Sidelights from ’91 to ’94.
Today I help run 3 pages on Facebook, two of which advocate social nudity, the other is a skyclad coven, Valraven Temple, of which I am High Priest. I can perform weddings and handfastings. Right now my coven members are separated between CA, AZ, and Kansas. We have an idea to get some land someday (on the back burner for now) where we can be free & naked.
