Peter Gunn Acrylic 36″ x 36″

I was born in Livermore California, did my kindergarten to 12 years in San Leandro California, and graduated with Bachelor of Science Degree in Geography and Economics from the University of Nevada at Reno. 

My working career included employment with the US Marine Corp, AT & T, Nevada Bell, BC Analytical, Holy Names University, Chabot College, and the University of California Berkeley.

I am not a trained artist. I currently belong to the Pleasanton Art League and the Livermore and Alameda Art Associations.

I work with acrylic on canvas but on occasions I use acrylic with plaster on burlap.  My work is always on display at the Alameda Art Association gallery in Alameda California. Most of my work is contemporary abstract and mid century (atomic art as it might be called in Palm Springs).

I don’t paint because I hope to inspire people or provide them with a religious or out of body experience. I just like to paint.
