Artist Statement 

Pope Francis has stated that an artist is an apostle of beauty. That statement has become my mantra as a non-traditional college art student. If there is a way to bring beauty or to enhance beauty in this world, then I want to be part of that endeavor.

Between semesters, I have enriched my art training with instruction from Five Points in Torrington and Arts Escape in Southbury. Urban sketching using watercolors has become a way to practice my skills in a fun way. My latest school work includes portrait painting using oil paints. With two adult children, I have models to work with.


Artist Biography

Joseph Nolan is an art student from Waterbury, CT. Although he is a senior citizen, his art experience only goes back a few years. He has studied at Naugatuck Valley Community College, Housatonic Community College and Western Connecticut State University.

Eclectic would be a way to describe the work of Joseph Nolan. In order to sharpen his art skills, Nolan has copied the works of master artists from different eras and different genre. A recent focus has been on portrait painting.

Joseph Nolan would like to continue drawing and painting well into the future.
