About the Cover Artist, Larry Iwerks

Larry's watercolors adorn many rooms throughout Santa Barbara City College's campus, for its programs have inspired many of his best paintings. When I saw his colorful and romantic watercolors, I knew that Larry was the artist who could capture the uniqueness and charm of the towns I loved.

I asked him to paint the covers of our HarborTown Histories. He agreed and a wonderful collaboration was born. We thoroughly enjoy working together, and hope to produce a calendar as soon as we have completed twelve books.

Larry Iwerks studied at San Francisco State University, the Mendocino Art Center, and at the Santa Barbara Art Institute under veteran landscape painter Ray Strong. Larry continues to paint western landscapes friom his studio/home in Santa Barbara.
