I am Ric Royer*.
I was born in a cold, depressed and creepy town.
I am a maker of cold, depressed and creepy works.
I like to make things that bang together the faults of the individual in society, and the failures of society on the individual.
I live in the Hudson Valley with an amazing person named Miriam. We are nestled between a scrapyard and a river that flows both ways.
