BIOGRAPHY

Vincent started drawing at an early age, teaching himself by studying other artists. Following his degree in Fine Art from State University, New York, 1982 and his Masters in Fine Art from Syracuse University, 1985, he chose to pursue a career in illustration working, amongst others, for the large publishers DC Comics and Marvel Comics.

About ten years ago, Vincent transitioned back to fine art and found that this was what he really wanted to do. He loves painting subjects that relate to real life experiences, wanting his paintings to reflect true moments of life. Capturing the quality of light in a scene is also an important element for him, especially the way in which it can enhance the mood he is portraying in the painting. He tends to work in series, choosing a subject that interests him and exploring it thoroughly to develop its full potential, something that his collectors react to very favorably.

Vincent has several prestigious awards to his credit, he has had many solo and group shows in the USA and has attracted many serious collectors.
