About this title


Visions of California is a beautifully paired collection of paintings and poems with an approach that is unique in the modern American art world. While each painting and every poem stands on its own merit the two amplify and compliment one another much as a melody and lyric do in music. This effect is an artistic "stereo" with two distinct sources that form a single enhanced impression.

About the Author:

Jim Lamb Born in Hamilton, Montana, and now living in Sammamish, WA, Lamb studied at the Art Center College of Design of Los Angeles and has 15 years experience as a professional freelance illustrator. The Smithsonian Institution, the National Football League, the U.S. Postal Service, as well as numerous leading movie studios and national corporations have commissioned his work. Lamb was chosen Artist of the Year in 1991 for the nationally recognized Southeastern Wildlife Exposition in Charleston, South Carolina. His work was also selected for the National Birds in Art Show that traveled to Japan and can be seen in North Light's book, The Best of Wildlife Art. Jim's work is part of the permanent collections of the National Football League, the Smithsonian Institution, the Pentagon, the Smithsonian National Postal Museum, The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Museum and the Montana Historical Society. The US Postal Service included Jim's work in a show at the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. Tom Martin Now a resident of Sonoma, California, Tom Martin was born in Red Wing, Minnesota and raised in Northern and Central California. At various times, and for equally various reasons, he has also lived in Hawaii, Guam, the Missouri Ozarks, and Jackson Hole, Wyoming. A graduate of the University of California at Berkeley, Martin has been writing poetry, short stories, and songs since his early teens. His work has been published in the National Anthology of College Poetry, featured in several poetry collections, and used in curricula for college creative writing courses. Martin's poems and songs were a centerpiece for the opening of the Wildlife Museum of the American West in Jackson, Wyoming in 1988. The opening exhibit for the museum included works by Thomas Moran and other seminal American landscape and wildlife artists. Martin has copyrighted more than 100 songs, and still performs as a singer/songwriter and guitarist. He is also lead guitarist in two Sonoma bands. In addition to his poetry and songs, he has written a novel, BERKELEY BLUES.
