December 10,1967: "By JEAN BAKER Sentinel Staff Writer News of the California story reached clear to Cornwall, England, where John and Angela Faulkner and their sons, Julian, James and Matthew lived. And the family packed up a few small possessions This is the first trip any of the Faulkners has made to the U.S. And they've come to stay. Faulkner is an artist. By English educational standards, he has a doctorate in art. This is because the European schools tend to specialize rather than requiring a broad background leading up to the baccalaureate and graduate degrees. He studied at St. Martin's School in London and is a member of Artists International Association, Newlyn Society of Artists in Cornwall and Penwith Society of St. Ives, Cornwall. He was a university extension lecturer and toured such countries as France, Spain and Italy with students, lecturing and painting as he toured. Since coming to Santa Cruz in the past six weeks, Faulkner has worked on the old Halsey house on Mission Street, restoring the stencils on the dado and the ceilings. "I am glad to see Santa Cruz is interested in preserving the old." Faulkner said. '"These are irreplaceable and worth preserving simply as a part of the heritage of the area." Faulkner is particularly interested in modern contemporary art. He works in oils, watercolors, collages and three dimensional design, as well as painting mural decorations for large business establishments. While in England he exhibited regularly and had several one-man shows. He brings with him a wide back- Newcomers to Santa Cruz The John Faulkner family has crossed an ocean and a continent to make Santa Cruz their home. The boys, James, left, and Matthew are in fourth and third grades respectively at Branciforte Elementary School. Julian, seated by his mother, is at Branciforte Junior High School. Faulkner is an artist and Mrs. Faulkner writes poetry."
