M r. Posard’s enchantment with art
began as a child. Later a full scholarship
to Cooper School of Art helped fragrant the
intoxication of that enchantment. Upon
graduating, he went to work for a leading
advertising studio in the mid-west where
he served his apprenticeship.

Once in California, Hollywood provided
his next opportunity, becoming art director
for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts &
Sciences literature for three Oscar Presentations.
Afterwards, he art-directed numerous
national magazines, ultimately creating
a successful printing and graphics
firm in Southern California.

Mr. Posard’s paintings synthesize the
landscapes of California up and down the
state, right into his own backyard.

Presently, Mr. Posard resides in San Rafael
where he takes that stubbornly-held,
child-like enchantment and paints every
chance he gets.
