Tom Applegate

Art has always been an enduring passion for me, and deeply influenced by my outdoor pursuits such as surfing, climbing, solo wilderness exploration and flying. For three decades, I worked as wildlife biologist on California's stunning beaches.  Now, it's the fusion of beach culture and conservation that fuels my artistic endeavors.
