A Northern California artist, Walters has worked the last 31 years as a commercial artist, art director, fine art teacher and painter. A lifelong pursuit of his has been interpreting, expressing and communicating his feelings and ideas of nature and the world around him through painting and visual means.

Enjoying a wide range of subject matter, including figures, genre, landscapes and paintings based on foreign travels, Walters loves the process of juggling the many formal elements of painting — texture, shapes, colors, tone, line, edges, etc. — and pulling them together in an inventive manner a successful composition or design.

Walters has won many prestigious awards in national and regional competitions, including many Best of Shows and Awards of Excellence. The PAA is very pleased that he will be sharing his rich expertise with them.
