Lowell Herrero (1921-2015, American)

Lowell Herrero, Cat artistLowell Herrero (1921-2015, American) was born in California and graduated from Oakland Technical High School and during WWII served in the U.S. Coast Guard. After the war, he enrolled in the California College of Arts and Crafts. Initially, Herrero worked in advertising and illustration; afterwards he started his own graphic design agency. With the closing of this business, Herrero began to pursue a career in fine art.
