Deriving inspiration from his artist father and uncle and the rolling hills of his Newburgh, New York home, Vincent was destined for greatness from the very beginning.
Vincent’s initial works offer evidence of his early dedication to the craft. Using brown paper bags he retrieved from the grocery store, the adolescent artist fashioned mock-canvases. Though wrinkled, the blank sheets provided the perfect surface for charcoal, Vincent’s childhood medium of choice. Vincent spent hours and hours using these unlikely tools; implements that would shape the seasoned artist he would later become.
Vincent was accepted to the Savannah College of Art and Design, but after a year decided the environment at the Pratt Institute was more suitable. There, he studied Illustration and Communications Design. After receiving his Bachelors from the Pratt Institute, Vincent accepted a job near his hometown as an illustrator and industrial designer. He dreamed of painting full-time, however; a dream that became reality two years later.
Eager to return to greener pastures, away from the hustle and bustle of New York City, Vincent relocated to Georgia where he continues to fine tune his painting style.
