A music video for Ray Troll's album. This music video involved a lot of local talent and was a blast to make! We had 2 hours in Silver Lining Seafoods to go crazy! This is the result!

Moving to Alaska in 1983 exposed me to the forces of the natural world, changed my life, and transformed my art. Living with deep woods on one side and the deep ocean on the other is magical for me and informs my art like no other influence.

I’m obsessed with the creatures of the watery realm, but why? It’s hard to explain an obsession rationally. In short, I say, I find the fish fascinating and with over 25, 000 living species to choose from the selection is inexhaustible. I also say that sea creatures have become vehicles for my moods, my thoughts, and my opinions about the human condition and our own place in the grand biological scheme of things. Sometimes whimsically, sometimes menacing and edgy, the fish lead me on, diving deeper into creative explorations.

As I spent more time in the aquatic wonderland, my curiosities led me to befriend scientists and writers. I came to realize that scientific inquiry and artistic inquiry overlap beautifully as both disciplines seek to ‘know the world’ in complex and elegant ways. The cross currents between art, science, music and literature are the waters in which I prefer to swim.
