Andrew Faulkner is a graphic designer who loves to produce images of Northern California. He was born into a family of artists, designers and
architects and likes to use technology, including a digital
drawing tablet, to manipulate his work before he applies
it to paper.
“My father-in-law lived at Stinson Beach for several
years, giving me and my wife a great excuse to make many
trips over the hill from Mill Valley. The view, just as the
beach reveals itself, never gets old for me,” Faulkner says.
Barbara Libby-Steinmannmovedto Marin in 1996 and currently teaches art at Bacich Elementary School in Kentfield.
She uses an i Phone to capture her subject, then
sketches out the proportion lines and compositional elements before applying layers of oil paint
with palette knives and brushes.
“For my oil paintings and pen-and-ink works
I draw inspiration from the beauty of western
Marin County,” she says. “St. Mary’s Church is
a historical West Marin icon, which has sparked
my inspiration in its simplicity and setting.”
