Submit to Book #9 Hi Desert Entry

Thank you for your interest to be part of the art-book-project #9 Hi Desert Book.

Deadline is June 6, 2018 midnight California time.


I sent you an email, please let me know if you would like to be in the book, so I can edit the email list to only those who commit.


I have a fascination with the Desert, especially ‘my’ desert. The Mojave. As a native Californian the deserts’ life, stillness, light, weather, the smells, touch my soul. I owned a property in N. Palm Springs in the early 2000s with plans to build in Desert Hot Springs. Life happened, I moved on, and now live in my forever-for-now home in Gardena with my son.

My heart still longs for the desert. When my friend Michael McCall moved to the hi-desert in 2017, one of our conversations lead to us working on this book together. WOW! what a great opportunity all around—for me, him, and you, the artists of the hi desert California.

This book will be a 8.5″ x 11″, 4/color book printed at and becomes #9 in the  “Our Ever Changing World” art-book-project series of books.

Each book has it’s own question. YOUR question is:

Why did you locate in the Hi-desert, and what fulfills and feeds your passions as an artist by living there? What are the plans for you and your art in the future?

Please NOTE this is not a bio or statement its a story, in the first person.


The interior will have a horizontal photo of you in your studio with your art along with your story, from 500 up to 1000 words. Here are two examples of what the pages will look like along with some text. AND the size and focus needed for the photo to be… horizontal etc.
