Ramiro Sanchez took his talent for painting to Los Angeles Trade Tech and came back to Corcoran to paint almost everything in sight, from downtown murals to business signs. He talked about his career as the Business to Business guest at the Corcoran Rotary Club luncheon last week.
Born in Texas, he has spent most of his life in Corcoran. During a four-year-period, he did sign-painting in the Houston, Texas area.
His business has grown to include not only signs, but banners, wall lettering and vehicles, as well as decorative murals. His mural work can be seen downtown at Christmas Tree Park and on the side of the Subway Sandwich building, and at the Veterans Hall. He has also done custom painting at local schools.
His newest endeavor is producing a number of paintings of Corcoran and the surrounding area. His work is currently on display at the Corcoran Chamber of Commerce office and fittingly depots “Tule Life,” with a coyote making his way through the countryside. “I really enjoy what I do,” he said. “I would love to work on murals and painting showing the history of Corcoran.”
In addition to his own business, Sanches listed his favorite local business as New China Restaurant, noting they serve excellent food and have great services.
