Member's "face portrait"
Robert brings his passion for aircraft and the love of flight into aviation related attempting to create a place where the viewer may wish to be, if only for a moment. Therefore, his paintings of military aircraft usually appear in non-lethal scenes focusing on the beauty of the machine and its surroundings. When not painting aircraft Robert follows his Celtic heritage by painting landscape scenes from both Scotland and Ireland.
He attempts to recreate ruined castles and homes to the state that they were in when new. Born in Dorchester, MA, he graduated from Vesper George School of Art, in Boston, concentrating in commercial art and advertising. His art career began with Rust Craft Greeting Cards Inc. working in the design and finished art departments until the company's closure. Since 1985 nearly two hundred military and civilian aviators from as far away as North Carolina and Texas have commissioned works.
