Michael Corob has lived on the California Central Coast his entire life, and loves beauty in the landscape and the people. He has a degree in art, and teaches Art and Special Education. His paintings are his emotional and visual responses to the life force in nature. They are sometime dark ink with a few quick lines, other times colorful images of animals playing musical instruments. He wrote his first of three collections of poems and images in 2000, with his fourth to be completed an released soon.
