STUDIO 2 evolved from a friendship between two old friends who wanted to find a way to do art for a living. Ron Juncal and Tim Leslie had been friends since college days and reconnected in Carlsbad, Ca in 1995. Together they combined their skills in fine art and sign making to develop a viable business. Within a year Phyllis Swanson, a fellow artist, left the field of insurance and became our first first employee. Though Tim had to move on, Phyllis and Ron have continued together to this day, creating art and offering a place for artists to be employed in the creation of art.
The wonderful people who have been a part of the Studio 2 Team over the years have helped us create fantastic works of art for both public and private spaces. Our team has participated in projects ranging from murals and artistic embellishments in private residences to creating art in places such as Rady Children’s Hospital and SeaWorld. The Team has also volunteered hundreds of hours in bringing art to our community through working to create art festivals and arts education in the schools and community programs.
Thanks to all our friends who have made Team Studio 2 so much fun over the years. Below are some of the images of those who have partnered with us in this art adventure. Hats off to each of you!
