Rob grew up in a suburb north of Chicago. After hiking across New England on the Appalachian Trail, he went on to study at the Rhode Island School of Design and graduated with a BFA in Illustration. Rob now resides in Denver, Colorado area. While his foremost passion is for learning of any kind, Rob's interests are frequently peaked by mythology, science, and psychology. These interests commonly influence his work, as do a multitude of inspiring artists from classical art to golden age illustration and contemporary representational art. Through his love affair with the medium of oil paint, he strives to make pictures that are not only beautiful but also thought provoking as well. Careful attention to edges and working "wet into wet" are important to getting the look Rob loves most, but above all, he feels that a successful painting must convey emotion in order to connect with the viewer in a lasting way.Rob is honored to be the recipient of the Best of Show award in the National Oil & Acrylic Painters' Society 2013 "Best of America" exhibit, as well as a Certificate of Excellence from the Portrait Society of America and an Honorable Mention from The Artists' Magazine among many other awards.
