“I was born in El Centro, California in 1961. At School, art and photography were my favorite subjects. I made paintings and photos of my favorite rockstars. “I was the singer in a punk band, the Maggots. When I graduated, I moved to the big city. I printed fanzines with my friends.We would sneak backstage and make bands do interviews with us. When my friends needed photos for their bands, I became a rock photographer. “I worked for magazines, too.I also did a book of tattoo photos for Abbeville Press. All along I kept on painting on jackets and for CD’s, and now I make paintings all the time.”– Vicki Berndt
