Tom Killion was born in California on the slopes of Mt. Tamalpais. The rugged scenery of Marin County and Northern California inspired him to create landscape prints using linoleum and wood, strongly influenced by the traditional Japanese Ukiyo-e style of Hokusai and Hiroshige. In 1975 he produced his first book of prints, 28 Views of Mount Tamalpais. Returning from two years travels in Europe and Africa, he founded Quail Press, publishing Fortress Marin in 1977 and The Coast of California two years later.

After obtaining a doctorate on Ethopia from Stanford, Tom Killion worked for two years in a medical relief program at an Ethiopian refugee camp in Sudan. He used information he collected on the history of Eritrea to produce the book Walls: A Journey Across Three Continents. He then taught African History at Bowdoin College for 4 years, and in 1994 was a Fulbright Scholar in Eritrea.

He currently lives in Santa Cruz and teaches at SFSU. He just completed The High Sierra of California, featuring 36 original prints and excerpts of Pulitzer prize-winning poet Gary Snyder. Tom Killion has had exhibitions in Europe and several US states, and his work is currently on display in many galleries.

Khosrow Sayyah grew up in Iran, studying sculpture and painting in the late 1960’s. He then taught for several years, before coming to the US for the first time. After obtaining additional art education at the College of Marin and in independent classes from UC Berkeley and at the Arts and Crafts School in Oakland, he returned to Iran for nearly twenty tears. He recently has returned to the United States.

Khosrow Sayyah’s paintings reflect the style of abstract surrealism. His work has appeared in many exhibitions in the United States and Iran and has been purchased by several museums.
