Charles "Pancho" Cruz

A true Northern Californian, Pancho Cruz was born in Sonoma in 1946 and has been working at Creativity Explored since the early nineties.

A joyful and eager artist, Cruz likes using a variety of media and doesn’t miss an opportunity to try something new with a visiting artist. He is very skilled at depicting movement and lending subtlety to his work. His large-scale renderings of insects are often reminiscent of impressionist paintings, while his portraiture takes its intensity from his chaotic, but controlled, line, which captures what is essential in his subject.
