Christopher Noxon Painter



I am an illustrator-turned-landscape painter inspired by the spirit, light, landforms and people of the Ojai Valley.

Spirit of Place – that’s the best way to describe what I try to convey, the calm/energized/teary-eyed feeling you get here.

I started painting in midlife, having settled here after raising kids and writing books in LA, including “Good Trouble: Lessons from the Civil Rights Playbook,” “Plus One,” “Rejevenile: Kickball Cartoons Cupcakes and the Reinvention of the American Grown-Up,” and “Can We Talk About Israel? A Guide for the Curious, Confused and Conflicted” (illustrator).
