Gary Bergren, Danville CA
Starting at the age of five, my artwork has become my language where I find most comfort and importance. It provides purpose and direction, and is food for my soul. My motivation is spurred by the creative process and desired subject, that in turn stimulates the passion needed to create the work to completion. Teaching art also has it’s importance. It forces me to be “refined”, and allows me to be giving to others which has its rewards. I have met so many wonderful and gifted students, and I am grateful to be in this position for our community.
