Vern Hestand III

A third-generation painter and woodcarver, I can't remember a time when I was not doodling, crafting and creating things with my hands.  My grandpa bought my first art piece when I was six years old, kick-starting my 'professional' career.  I started in cartooning and my love for animation led me to a job with Disney in the early 90's.  Later, I worked

for Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank, California until I branched out on my own as a self-employed artist.  I took my business, along with my wife Teresa, to Big Bear in the mountains and started Bear Mountain Woodworx and a new family.  As the computer world took over, my skills led to the digital arts and flowed into vector design, illustration, web design, and marketing.  Technology and I are old friends.  My Hollywood background mixed with my skills for visual communication combined into a film and photo project called Creation Studios.  Altogether, I'm simply blessed to do the thing I love to do and live in the most beautiful place in America.
