Biography Mervin Allen Corning
Mervin Allen Corning was born and raised in Santa Ana, California and started his career after WWII in San Francisco (1945). WWII interrupted Corning's senior year of high school when his parents moved from Santa Ana to San Francisco. Corning joined the Merchant Marines at age 17 and remained until the end of the war.
Corning's interest in drawing and painting was maintained throughout his early years. But his first experience as a working artist began as an illustrator for a Bay-area drug company chain. In less than two years Corning was working as an art director for a prominent San Francisco advertising agency. Around 1949, Corning accepted a job as a men's fashion artist for a major department store in Los Angeles.
