Artist Rob Hazzard
The Artist Says:
Other Artists Say:
Rob Hazzard is a stay-at-home father of two children and currently lives in Hopkinton, MA with his wife, Jessica. After graduating with a B.A. in Economics from Clark University in Worcester, MA he moved to Boston and entered the accounting and finance field, working in the world of spreadsheets and numbers, eventually earning an M.B.A. from North Eastern University.
Shortly before the arrival of his first child he left the rat race and opened a hand-painted furniture studio in the South End of Boston. After a few years he closed up shop to concentrate on the full-time effort of caring for his two children. Now that the children are getting older and more independent, he’s finding more time available to unleash his creativity through his artwork. While taking varied painting classes and workshops with instructors Carol Marine, Deborah Paris, Charlotte Wharton, Robert Collins and Jill Grimes, he has been widely accepted into local art shows. Since he began painting later in life than many artists, he is determined to develop and sharpen his skills through creating frequent oil still life and landscape paintings. His approach is to create a unique composition with dramatic lighting while applying deliberate, minimal brushwork, usually completing his works in one session, alla prima.
