victor is a painter,
ceramics & Copper artist
I was born in Haverhill, Massachusetts in 1950. I began to paint seriously when I was fourteen, working in oils and watercolors. I graduated from Worcester Academy in 1969 and went on to Montserrat School of Visual Arts and the Art Students League of New York. Impatient with academics, I dropped out of school and began the life of a starving artist. My early paintings reflected the influences of Winslow Homer and the Rockport School. I then became strongly attracted to the work of the Impressionists. In 1977, I settled in Oregon, becoming established as a landscape and seascape artist. I have long worked in acrylics, but now I am also experimenting with impressed and painted porcelain bisque, as well as copper wind chimes.
