Laguna Beach 2010 City Hall annual art contest awarded “The Pines of Maui” an honorable mention. It is inspired by an actual place in upcountry Maui. We first discovered it when biking down Haleakala Crater. I later retuned to paint the scenic area.


“Laguna Treasure” is a public arts commission awarded by the 2011 Laguna Beach City Council painting competition.  It is a 10’ by 3’ acrylic piece that is now hanging in the Council Chambers.

The scene depicts Treasure Island and the beautiful coastline just below the cliffs at the Montage Resort.

Named by the pirates who were rumored to have stashed their booty near the shores it is now a favorite spot for painters, photographers and beach lovers.

“Laguna at Night” was selected for the 2011 Juried art show and competition in Laguna Beach.

Welcome to the Esquerra Studio site. As many of you know I work in many mediums but primarily in oils, metal, acrylics and water color, both representational and abstract. However dabbling with pastels and photography, keeps me sane.
