James Marcel LaVoie
I have been painting most of my life and at the age of 12, I won my first art contest, 3rd place in the State of New Hampshire for a watercolor of “Birds and Flowers”. I won 1st place for a pen & ink drawing of the old Gothic City Hall.
I’ve been fortunate to have traveled all over the world. I was an Army brat and as a child lived in Germany and France. In 1974, I joined the Navy and was stationed in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on a destroyer which went on a West Pac cruise all over the Orient.
I use to paint in oils on canvas but now I paint on tin with acrylic paint. I’ve always been a cartoonist and I’ve always admired Impressionism so I guess my style of painting is the combination of the two.
I work at the Nanuet Home Depot as a Supervisor in the Paint Department and I live with my wife Sheila in Valley Cottage.
Please enjoy the exhibit. Thank you.
