Jeremy is a representational and perceptional painter, painting still life and models with his own interpretation in the final product. He is a remarkable rising star in the Boston painting scene. Over the course of his life, Jeremy has had many experiences that led him to a career as an artist. He first obtained an Associate’s degree in English at Mount Wachusett Community College.

A year later, he found himself registering for classes at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design after becoming inspired by Henri Matisse’s painting, “The Red Studio.” During his tenure at Mass Art, he met many influential people that advanced his passion and talents for art including Nancy McCarthy, Christopher Chippendale and George Nick.

One of the greatest things he learned from Chippendale was: “in a spiritual sense, it’s the activity itself [of painting] where the satisfaction comes from…It’s not just about the openings and the showcases.”
