Artist - Randall Graham
Randall’s passion for art has been apparent since childhood. His love of drawing and creating stories through works of art started at a very young age and hasn’t stopped yet. He studied at The Carlin Academy of Fine Art. Bo Bartlett has also taught Randall and influenced his style. The tradition of Chester County artists continues with Randall. He was born in Malvern Pa and today he resides in West Chester PA with his family. He keeps a studio in Malvern where he works and teaches traditional painting fundamentals.
Randall is ambitious when it comes to his approach to painting. His work comes into to being through a variety of channels including studio work, en plein air (outdoor painting) and his "en rain air" style. The "en rain air" style comes about from painting a scene from his mini van or window while it is raining. The rain drops on the window act as a means for abstraction. The juxtaposition of abstract and reality creates emotional paintings which have become very popular with Randall's collectors.
Randall also loves to share his knowledge of painting through teaching. Helping others create is a truly gratifying experience. Randall teaches traditional painting fundamentals at Randall Graham Studio in Malvern and at Chester County Art Association.
"I am fairly new to oil painting and the classes I take from Randy are great! He has endless good humor and is able to encourage you but still offer the constructive criticism (in a positive way) that one needs to improve. Randy believes in mastering the basics with a focus on understanding values in painting. I strongly recommend him for any level of artist as he meets you where you are on your artistic journey!" - Liz H
