Robert Anke lives with his wife and son in the San Francisco Bay Area, where he teaches art. He was completely pigeonholed by his first grade teacher, Ms. Phillip, who dubbed him “Artist Anke,” dooming him to a life of getting paint, ink, and clay all over his clothes on a daily basis. He’s worked in various media but never strays far from painting, drawing, and ceramics. A California native, he enjoys the outdoors anywhere from the San Gabriel Mountains down south, to the Trinity Alps up north, but spends most of his time in his beloved Briones Regional Park; the setting for many of his paintings.
