Kirk’s Retirement

It has been my pleasure to serve the art community of Folsom over the past six years at my studio in Historic Folsom. When I came to Folsom after closing my studio of almost twenty years in Old Town Tustin, California, I thought that I would retire. I found however, that there was a need for a teaching studio and gallery, so I opened a much smaller one, teaching a limited number of students.

After many more years, its now time for me to slow down, take it easy, and close my studio. Many thanks goes to my students who have followed and supported me throughout my career. I’ve enjoyed every class and every student – memories that will last forever.

We may have some limited workshops and or classes in 2020 at a different location. Check the website for any updates.

What may I do for you?

Decorate your home (Landscapes, Seascapes, Figurative Works), old master replicas and period pieces, people and animal portraiture.
