Author Bio

Martin Clarke spends most of his time surfing, swimming, and soaking up his muse: the ocean. Anita Hampton is a painter and teacher who currently holds workshops at the prestigious Scottsdale Art School in Arizona. Michael Obermeyer, holder of a BFA from California State University, Long Beach, exhibits across California and maintains his studio in Laguna Beach, CA. Kevin Short graduated with honors from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. His main artistic focus is painting landscapes of the two places he calls home-the desert and the beach. For more than 30 years, Alan has divided his career between the fine arts and the film industry. He has exhibited in galleries and museums across the US, most notably the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., and the Alternative Museum, NYC. He has contributed as a matte painter to such movies as Cliffhanger, Dante's Peak, Titanic, A.I., and What Dreams May Come. Tom Swimm of San Clemente, CA, exhibits his paintings across the country.
