Robert (bob) began painting in the late 70’s as he found this and woodworking as a way of relaxing. He worked in the human services field until he retired in 2008, when he began painting full time.
Bob is a self taught acrylic painter with his focus on original folk art scenes from the past. He likes using bright colors to catch the eye while then allowing the view to enter the realistically rendered picture to a simpler idyllic time.
Bob and his wife Betty live in rural Canaan, New York.
