David Walter Prokowiew is a self-taught painter living in the sleepy town of Lunenburg, Massachusetts. He grew up in the then bucolic town of Sudbury, MA where his childhood wanderings led him along the old stone walls, ancient woodlands and forgotten marshes of old New England. Later on, his love of the outdoors led him to the White Mountains, where he and friends would enjoy hiking and real back country camping.
David’s early art education was focused on graphic design. It wasn’t until after attaining a degree in Marketing from Bentley University and fifteen years as a website and graphic designer that he decided to pursue fine art. He has been painting for about six years and continues to be involved with Art Associations, Shows in New England and participates in workshops.
Besides painting, David loves to work with his hands and eventually he found that he enjoyed boatbuilding – completing several small boats in wood-strip and composite construction. Today, he spends much of the summer and autumn months in various parts of Maine or on Cape Cod with family, where he finds endless inspiration in the ever changing character of classic New England land and seascapes.
