JULY: Artist Statement
“As a young child, Bob found himself always coloring outside the lines. In time Bob realized his life would be as an artist. The quest for exploration has always been what drives him. Being a curious individual is probably his strongest attribute. Experimenting with different styles and techniques has always been his trademark.”

He is fearless in his exploration of new ideas and always strives to master whatever style or technique he tries. Bob believes we are put on this planet to make a difference and is the founder of The ARTree, an organization that helps individuals reach their creative potential. As an illustration major at the California Institute of the Arts, Bob always found himself gravitating toward fine arts and the wonderful freedom it gave to the artists.
After many years of working in the entertainment industry with CBS, Fox, and Telemundo, the need for exploring the freedom of fine arts has become a priority. In the past few years Bob has found himself enjoying creating works that are in private collections in Chicago, Phoenix, Arizona, Florida, Carlsbad, and Laguna Beach Ca.

His Fine Art pieces have also won numerous silver and gold awards including International Awards for paintings and drawing for multimedia projects.
