Artist Bio

David Lance Goines was born in 1945 in Grants Pass, Oregon, and is the oldest of eight children. His father was a civil engineer, and his mother was herself an accomplished artist and calligrapher.

After a brief flirtation with higher education at the University of California at Berkeley, terminated as a result of a serious disagreement with the administration over interpretation of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, he apprenticed in 1964 with a Berkeley printer, becoming in the fullness of time a journeyman of that Art and Mystery.

In 1968 he founded Saint Hieronymus Press in the same shop where he had learned his trade. There he has remained, designing his posters and printing them by photo-offset lithography.

As of September 1989, he had designed and printed 139 posters. They have been reproduced in numerous publications, including Communica­tion Arts, Print; How, Step-By-Step Graphics, American Illustration and Graphis magazines.

His work has been the recipient of many awards, and is represented in both public and private collections, among which are: Achenbach Foundation for the Graphic Arts, The Palace of the Legion of Honor, San Francisco Cooper-Hewitt Museum, Smithsonian Institution, Hiroshima Museum of Modern Art, Library of Congress, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art in New York, Musee de la Publicite in Paris, Oakland Museum, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Rochester Institute of Technology, Welber B. Cary, Jr. Graphic Arts Collection in New York.

He lectured frequently, in various places nationwide, and has taught occasionally at the University of California, Berkeley and the California College of Arts and Crafts, Oakland.

He is married and lives in Berkeley. He is a seventeen-gallon blood donor. His other interests include American Slang & Folklore, Astronomy, Bicycling, Brewing, Figure Drawing, History, Photogra­phy, Running, Weightlifting and Writing.
