Larry Reinhart Studio
Traditional Artist

Larry Reinhart

In Northern Oregon, I spent much of my young life running through open fields and creating forts in the surrounding dense forests. I loved stories, using my imagination, and creating things with my hands. When I began to put my creative ideas on paper memories of my imaginary adventures influenced me and I knew one day I would share these ideas with others. This led me to move to Southern California to pursue my artistic studies. I graduated with Honors of Distinction from the Art Center College of Design with a BFA in Illustration. Here I received my sought after formal education in traditional realist art and visual storytelling.

After graduating, I immediately put my education to the test and entered the commercial illustration market where within I ran a successful business for over fifteen years. I worked with some world renowned clients like Mattel, Leap Frog, Scholastic and Warner Bros where I worked on visual development for the first Harry Potter movie. I really grew as an artist during these years but to be honest I was missing something; the freedom to create my personal art. So, in 2010 I officially quit all commercial illustration work so I could develop my own voice and my own body of work.

Ten years later my quest for the imaginary wilds is still alive within me and I strive to bring this into my art. After all, everyone who walks through the woods will see, feel, and remember various things and thus react differently.
