Curriculum Vitae

WB Eckert is a lifelong artist/photographer with diverse professional experience in a wide range of media from fine arts painting and printmaking to photography, the graphic arts, and three dimensional design. His current full time focus is on painting, with acrylics as his medium of choice. His work is notable for his striking use of color, bold sweeping shapes and themes, and meditative atmosphere. He attended the University of California as a major in Fine Arts and has shown his work in the Central Coast area over many years. In addition to his own studio he currently maintains a shared studio at Studios on the Park in Paso Robles where he exhibits his work and teaches classes in acrylic painting. A resident of Southern California since 1955 and the California Central Coast since 1979, WB Eckert is very familiar with the rhythms and feel of the Pacific Coast and the wine region of the Central Coast area. He currently resides and works in Paso Robles, CA.
