Autobiography

By birth my name is Jared N. Blauer, but my pseudo name is Graveyard. I was born in 1978 in Modesto, California. I am an artist. I first approached art in 1997. I first started making photographs and then moved onto drawing and painting. I currently make more paintings than photographs. In the near future I hope to have it reversed. I have lived in South Korea from 2004 to 2009 then moved to Indonesia from 2009-2011, and currently live in Fresno CA where I have been since June 2011.
