Native California Aaron Westerberg grew up in San Diego. It was a class in Traditional life drawing that drew him to continue his Art training. He studied with Jeff Watts and later attended the California Art Institute, where he taught and expanded his focus to include the works of nineteenth century American and European Masters. Aaron feels a connection to these great painters of form and light. In his paintings, he strives for elegance and timelessness while striking a balance between classic techniques and contemporary subject matter.
