He writes in his flickr profile:
“An old man with time to read and think. A retired music teacher with 36 years spent in the public schools. A pianist who still plays all of Bach, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, and Schumann. A poet, a writer of prose, a Jungian who still reads Freud, an admirer of Thoreau and Twain. Most of my internet writing is on the life and works of Edgar Rice Burroughs.
“I come from a family of artists but only began doing my own graphic work in 1995 six years before my retirement. I studied pen and ink drawing for 6 years, then did a couple of years of watercolors, then since 2003 have been bitten by the big bad collage bug. Flickr kind of keeps me going — all the nice comments from interested and interesting artists. I basically developed my own style that I think is recognizable as art by nkimadams. Oh, I’m from Minnesota, USA but born raised out in the wilds of Minot, North Dakota.”
