Born in Beverly, MA on Boston’s North Shore, Peter has spent time living throughout New England in both coastal and western Massachusetts, Martha’s Vineyard, Vermont and, currently, New Hampshire.Peter trained in studio art at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst (BFA 1987) under artists Jack Coughlin, Lionel Gongora, John Grillo, and Hanlon Davies.

Having established himself as a successful Creative Director and designer, Peter continued pushing his studio work and opened a small gallery in Vineyard Haven, on Martha’s Vineyard, where he lived year-round for three years, in the early 90’s. Upon returning to the mainland he co-founded, as Creative Director, a web design and software company based in New Hampshire, while maintaining his studio work. His work is represented by prestigious galleries in the Boston area, Vermont, Cape Cod, New Hampshire and Hilton Head Island, SC. Peter also annually donates work for the benefit of local non profits, including Boston’s WGBH public television and Fenway Health.

Ron has been painting ever since he can remember. Primarily working in oils and acrylics, he has been greatly influenced by the Hudson River and Barbizon Tonalist painters. He prefers to paint in the contemporary realist style always pushing for that elusive and intoxicating vision of that next painting that could satisfy the never ending quest for the beauty and truth of life.

Ron is also a musician/composer and for many years owned and operated a recording studio primarily dedicated to film scoring. He currently enjoys creating and recording original musical compositions for some of his larger paintings which are included with the sale of these paintings on a CD. “I hear music when I am painting and I see graphical images when I am creating music. It all seems to come from the same place manifest in these two different mediums.”

“But I choose to create music where painting chooses me. Therefore, painting is my true passion”.

Ron is a New Hampshire native and currently lives and paints in the Sunapee region of New Hampshire. “New Hampshire is a great area to live if your an artist. There seems to be a new painting around every corner and over each hill.”  New Hampshire has a great history of artists coming to the state to live and pursue their creative visions. Most notably were the Dublin and Cornish artists colonies in the early 1900s as while as the White Mountain School period in the mid to late 1800’s. “It is always great fun to study some of the paintings done from those periods and then go out and try to find the actual spot from which it was painted.”

Ron’s paintings can be found in many private, corporate and government collections nationally and internationally.

Being an artist means that I see things others may not. When I look around I am always analyzing form, color and tone. I appreciate the design and patterns that nature makes and strive to capture these in my paintings. I love painting en plein air and find unlimited inspiration from the beauty in nature. Water is one of my favorite subjects.

I paint only in oil because of the richness of color and the flexibility of this medium. Influenced by the great Impressionists, my goal is to capture light and atmosphere in every painting while creating a well composed, unique and interesting work of art. I want the viewer to see and feel the beauty, tranquility and wonder that exists in nature.

Graduated from Massachusetts College of Art with a Certificate in Design and presently a Juried Member of the New Hampshire Art Association.

I reside in southwestern New Hampshire with my Jack Russell Terrier, Otis Campbell, named after the character on the Andy Griffith Show.

I am a self-taught / outsider artist. My art is both thought provoking and humorous.

You will find my work in galleries throughout New England, Cape Cod, Atlanta, San Francisco, in the American Folk Art Gallery in New York City, and in private collections throughout the United States and Europe.

I was selected by “Early American Life” magazine as the 2010 Best & Listed in The Directory of Traditional American Crafts.

My sculptural pieces are created entirely from recycled wood and metal.

Using vintage pieces for my painted furniture gives them a primitive appearance. Each piece is unique and one-of-a-kind.

James Coe is an artist with a passion for birds, nature, old barns, and relics of our rural heritage. With an interest in ornithology, he earned a degree in biology from Harvard.  His training in art came later, as a graduate student at the Parson’s School of Design in New York. There he studied in a traditional atelier setting, working primarily from the figure and still life, under the guidance of painters Paul Resika, Leland Bell, and John Heliker.

Jim began his art career in illustration and is best known as the author and illustrator of the acclaimed Golden Field Guide Eastern Birds. After spending fifteen years creating bird identification plates, Jim stepped back across the divide into the world of ‘fine’ art, to paint landscapes in plein air. He realized that many of the skills needed to capture the fleeting light of the landscape were similar to those he had developed for sketching birds. Both rely on careful observation, visual memory, speed, and instinct.

His oil paintings combine his love of the landscape with a finely detailed knowledge of natural history. In his works that incorporate birds, Jim’s goal is to introduce an element of movement, color, or interest to the scene. The species included is typically a bird he heard or saw when painting a plein air study on location.. He has found that many of the skills needed to capture the fleeting light and dynamic conditions of the landscape are analogous to those he had previously developed for sketching an active bird as it foraged or preened. Both rely on careful observation, practiced visual memory, speed, and instinct.

Represented today in the permanent collections of the New York State Museum, Museum of American Bird Art at Mass Audubon, the Hiram Blauvelt and Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museums, and the Bell Museum of Natural History, Jim was the subject of a feature article in the September 2017 issue of Harvard Magazine.  His work has been featured also in Wildlife Art, American Art Collector, and Plein Air magazine. His paintings have appeared on the covers of Sanctuary, Bird Watcher’s Digest, Birding World, and The Auk, professional journal of the American Ornithologist’s Union.

Jim lives with his wife Karen in the Hudson Valley, not far from Albany, NY. He maintains a studio in their restored farmhouse, and enjoys the quiet and beauty of the surrounding woodlands and gardens.
