Born in San Diego, California, Albert Fennell's talent was evident at the age of five when he started drawing in‑depth pictures of cartoon characters. As a young man in the sixth grade at Ocean View Elementary School, his landscape done in tempera paint was selected in a districtwide competition and was exhibited in the San Diego Museum of Art. He studied fine arts at San Diego Mesa College, commercial drawing at San Diego City College, and refined his skills at Alexander's School of Drawing, Printing, and Design.
Fennell's artwork has been seen on the television series, "Generations", and he received commission from Rosa Parks, Anita Baker, Jesse Jackson, and Father Clement. Fennell stated, "Through my work, I try to create a communication level between all people dealing with truth, pride, and compassion. I thank God for the talent He has given me and the opportunity to present it to you."
