Armand Cabrera lives in Northern Virginia where he enjoys painting the four seasons and diverse scenery of the East Coast. A San Francisco native, Armand spent 2 decades as a successful artist in the computer games and entertainment industry working for LucasFilm Games, Disney, Microsoft, Zynga, Nickelodeon, Electronic Arts and other notable game companies. An awardwinning artist, Armand paints both in studio and en plein air. Armand regularly writes an informative art blog for Collectors, Artists and Art Enthusiasts: www.ArtAndInfluence.com "Painting from life, when approached with integrity, is the most honest form of painting I know. There is no filter between the artist ad his or her experience; no camera or computer to crop the image and freeze the light moving through the sky."
