Lou has been drawing and painting since childhood.  He grew up in historic Bucks County Pennsylvania and is influenced by the great painters who have given the area its wonderful artistic reputation such as Thomas Eakins, Cecilia Beau, Daniel Garber and Edward Redfield.  Lou won several awards for his artwork in Bucks County and Philadelphia prior to entering high school.  He believes that creating artwork is more of a vocation than a choice of profession.  Lou graduated from Penn State University in architectural engineering in 1992 and ultimately left his career after a few years to pursue his desire to paint. He attended the School of Visual Arts in New York at age 27 and has never looked back.  He studied with several great painters at SVA; Steven Assael, Max Ginsburg, Marvin Mattelson and Garin Baker.  Lou also gets his inspiration from the works of the great painters and illustrators of the early 20th century such as Sargent, Sorolla, Repin, Thomas Anshutz and Norman Rockwell.   Lou has worked as a background, concept and digital artist in the film and video game industry.  There is a story behind every painting Lou creates and his goal is to draw the viewer into that story.   He currently lives in Media, PA with his wonderful wife, Paula, and dog, Yogi.
