Dave has been a New Englander his entire life with his roots in Maine and having lived in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. Although Dave came from an artistic family, he pursued a career as a financial advisor. His mother painted watercolors almost daily even though she was busy raising nine children and Dave’s brother Bob was one of the “Old Port Painters” of the 70’s and 80’s in Portland Maine.
After attending art school nights and weekends Dave made the decision in 2010 to transition out of the financial world to pursue his passion and become a full-time painter.
Dave spent two years as the A-I-R at the Whistler House Museum of Art and is a member of The Rockport Art Association, North Shore Arts Association and the Copley Society of Art.
Dave lives in Andover and maintains a north light studio in Lowell MA.
