Artist of the Month

Ed Des Lauriers of Clovis is the Pintores Artist of the Month for September.

His artwork will be on display at the Clovis-Carver Library through the month. He is the 2008-2009 president of the Pintores Art League.

As a design draftsman at Lockheed, commercial pilot and eight years as an aircraft mechanic in the U.S. Marine Corps, he gained understanding of aircraft and they sky in which they live. His paintings can be found exhibited in air museums, private collections, pilot ready rooms and the wardrooms of two of the nation’s aircraft carriers.

Recently retired, Des Lauriers prefers to spend his time perfecting his artwork and the associated interests of museum quality model-making and the study of military history.
