A native Californian, Barron Postmus spent several years in Hawaii before returning to school at the Los Angeles Art Center. A brief stint in the Army took him to Europe where he served as an illustrator. After the service, he was hired as a technical illustrator by a large aerospace firm. The next few years saw him promoted rapidly to graphics designer, and in 1968, Barron opened his own graphic design and illustration agency. In 1985, he became a full time painter. His work is in corporate collections including Infonet of El Segundo, the Sears Tower in Chicago and in the VIP lounge of the new Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas.
