Donald Mosher grew up on the North Shore of Massachusetts. A descendant of shipbuilders from Nova Scotia and farmers from Maine, Don is naturally drawn to the power of the sea and the tranquility of the New England countryside. His interest in art began when he won his first award for art at the age of eight. Since then, he has won more than 150 awards, and his paintings hang in the permanent collections of large corporations, institutions, banks, and private homes. His work is included at the Peabody Museum, Portland Art Museum, the Bank of Boston, Shawmut Bank, and the State House in Boston.
