About the Artists

          Clint Hubler

My name is Clint Hubler and I was born and raised in Monterey, California. I love the beach, all things coastal, and I am passionate about the digital art medium. I would love to share my art with you and I hope it brings you joy and peace. 

I started drawing as a child and have especially loved cartooning. My father even took me to meet Eldon Dedini, famous American cartoonist who lived in Carmel. Dedini reviewed my art and encouraged me to continue and grow my talents. As a teenager I worked as a caricature artist at Edgewater Packing Company on Cannery Row. I also became the cartoonist and artist for the Monterey High School newspaper. As a young adult I continued my art journey by working at Hansen Gallery in Carmel, California. I helped set up the art shows, including one for Peter Max, a famous American pop artist. 

Art is an expression of family and love. 

I have given many of my original oil paintings to close friends with terminal cancer in hopes that the works would bring them comfort. Art has a way of healing. I turned to digital art in hopes that I can expand my reach and offer a bit of cheer to corners of darkness.

I hope one of these pieces lands in your home to bring you joy!

 

Heinz Hubler (1934-2013)

My father was born and raised in Biel, Bern, Switzerland. He immigrated to the United States at age 20. He was interested in photography from a very young age. 

Heinz was a world traveler and tour guide. He took photographs in many countries including Russia, China, Switzerland, Italy, France, Ireland, Canada, Egypt, Africa, South America, and many other lands. He spoke French, Italian, German, and some Vietnamese (having served in the Red Cross). 

He was an active member of the Image Makers of the Monterey Peninsula. He is most famous for his Carnival of Venice works, which have been shown on multiple occasions at the Pacific Grove Art Center. He was a freelance photographer for magazines in New Zealand and the UK. He was even hired by a golf magazine to do a photo shoot for the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro/Am. He is a founder of Sand City, California's West End annual art celebration. He also served on the Monterey County Symphony board of directors. 

Two of his prized works are displayed at the Monterey Peninsula College library, "Sunburst II" and "Napoleon Twins". His photography can still be found online as stock photos, on travel website, and in textbooks. 

I am displaying some his photographs from his personal slide collection. I am setting up his own page. I am also collaborating, father and son, using his images to render my own paintings. My hope is that some of his choice work will live on and his artistic legacy will come through my art.

Dad, thank you for your rich and colorful talent!
