Born in Malden, Mass., Donald Allen Mosher won his fist art prize when he was nine years old, and has since gained over 200 painting awards. After spending his early years in Topsfield and Saugus, he graduated from the Vesper George School of Art in 1968. From there he went on to be an Art Director and illustrator for ten years, and an art teacher and demonstrator.
Don’s favorite subject is then landscape, and he loves to paint outdoors, whether it be snowy New England, or one of the many locations he and his artist wife travel to across the United States and Europe.
His strongest influences come from the Early Cape Ann artists such as Mulhaupt, Hibbard and Gruppe, who were offshoots of the American Impressionist.
Donald works in drawing and watercolors, but is primarily known for his oil paintings, where he attempts to “portray and honest look into his personal view of the world.”
