February features the paintings of Dave Manousos

 

My love of art was spawned at an early age by my grandmother who was a fine artist. She lived with our family and out of my 10 other siblings, I was the only one that she allowed in her studio. She patiently taught me drawing and painting techniques that I still use today.

Over the past 35 years I have experimented with many techniques of painting and illustration. I have written and illustrated children’s books, been a graphic designer and continued to paint.

In the past few years, I have focused primarily on my painting and have created a series of acrylic paintings that combination both my illustration and painting styles.
