Featured Artists Tony Geary & Erica Hampton

TONY GEARY, PAINTER & WOOD CARVER

A.P. Geary-Millet, or Tony Geary, had an early inclination to the arts. Growing up in Sydney, Australia he became an illustrator by way of Waverly College. Tony moved with his family to Lake Arrowhead in 1974 after a long career in illustration, where he returned to painting, specializing in wildlife scenes from throughout the state. Over the years, Tony’s work has evolved and expanded. Today, he enjoys oil painting and creating one-of-a-kind hand carved frames that depict scenes familiar to all who love of Lake Arrowhead, including the lake, mountains, and wildlife. 

ERICA HAMPTON, PHOTOGRAPHER

A portraitist by nature, Erica gravitates toward faces and the stories they tell. This inclination naturally lends to her lifestyle and fashion work which brought her to L.A. from the mid-west. Since moving to the mountain in the fall of 2015 she has been captivated by the landscape, the marriage of chaparral and pine, the fog and the sun.You can find her in Los Angeles, Detroit, and more often than not chasing clouds near her San Bernardino Mountain home.

I love to film things, tell stories, and read on the subway. I'm pretty sure blue whales are my power animal.
