Painter, etcher, and muralist, Will Sparks became one of California's premier artists, known for his mission and nocturnal adobe scenes.  He was highly prolific, completing about three-thousand oil paintings.

He was born in St. Louis, Missouri, and showed art talent as a youngster, selling his first painting when he was age twelve.  He became a doctor, but his love of art prevailed.  He attended the St. Louis School of Fine Arts and then went to New York and then Par (showing 500 of 2652 characters).
