LPAPA Signature Artist John Budicin
San Bernardino, California
Born in Italy, John Budicin moved to California at the age of 11, where he went to college, and continues to live today. After several years as a commercial artist and freelance illustrator, he took the opportunity to pursue his dream of becoming a plein air artist when his employer moved out of state. He loves to paint directly from nature so he paints outdoors almost every day. In addition to being a dedicated painter, he spends several weeks each year teaching workshops all around the US, and taught a workshop in Umbria and Tuscany, Italy.
