Frank Valliere

Raised in New England and schooled in Boston, I explored many mediums and subjects. I have worked for the last twenty-five years as an all-purpose illustrator, designer, fabricator, and restorer of everything from jewelry and handbags to furniture, gardens and landscapes, vehicles toys, and bicycles.

While painting landscapes I am driven by the combined atmosphere of light, color, shape, and texture. There are seldom people in my landscapes, but their presence is implied by old barns and retired, old vehicles. My paintings rarely happen quickly. They seem to grow over time, taking weeks, months, and sometimes years to reach maturity. As well as being in numerous collections, I exhibit regularly around the country and in international shows.
