About the Artist, Mike Robles
I am an award winning artist and a native Californian. I was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and graduated from Carlmont High School, Belmont in 1958.
I graduated from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo in 1963 with a BS in Physical Sciences. One week after graduating, I married Jane and we are now celebrating over 50 years of marriage.
I was exposed to art at a young age by my extremely gifted artist mother and step-father. But, I did not get serious about drawing and painting until I retired from GE in 2003. I found that I enjoyed painting (mainly, watercolors and acrylics). I have taken art classes from several local artists, Gayle Nelson, Clancy Crew, Nancy Saltsman and Gerald Brommer to name a few. I will continue my art education as there is always something new to learn and my style is still developing. I use bold, saturated colors and have not limited myself to any particular subject niche, anything that catches-my-eye may become a subject for a painting! Since Jane and I like to travel, many of my subjects have come from the trips we’ve taken.
