Ricker Winsor attended Northfield Mount Hermon School, Brown University, where he studied English, and The Rhode Island School of Design where he received BFA and MFA degrees. He has worked as a photojournalist, as a cabinetmaker, as a teacher, and as an exhibiting landscape painter. He is also a professional musician performing in cafes and clubs for over twenty years.
His writing was published beginning in the ’60s during his photojournalism days but Pakuwon City is his first book.
His home is his West Wind Studio in Bradford, Vermont, and he is now living in Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia with his Chinese Indonesian wife, Jovita. He is working on a new book about his spiritual development in a confusing world.
“Ricker Winsor is a “force of nature — photographer, cabinetmaker, musician, writer, painter, fisherman, golfer, squasher, indefatigable lover, Catholic mystic and pretty good cook.” – Ken Rower
