Greetings, My name is Charles Landholm. I consider myself an eclectic artist with a wide range of artistic styles. I especially love doing commissions which challenge me the most. Realism, abstract, sculpture, photography and most recently assemblage art are a few of the styles I enjoy.
I’m a long-time Long Beach artist. My early training was in music and I’ve been a singer/songwriter most of my life. Five years ago I began painting and taking photographs as another way of exploring my creativity. Since then I have had multiple gallery exhibits in Long Beach, San Pedro and North Hollywood.
I’m a photographer shooting a wide range of subjects, including the Port of Long Beach, industrial sites, nature, and street photography. My on-line portfolio is at: http://www.thelbcphotos.com/
