Todd Montanaro Todd Montanaro grew up in Rhode Island and started drawing and painting at an early age. He studied studio art at The Art Institute of Chicago, The School of Museum of Fine Arts, Massachusetts College of Art, and through multiple workshops with nationally renowned artists such as Don Demers, Bill Davis, Joe McGurl, Joe Paquet, David Curtis and Stapleton Kearns. He began exhibiting and selling his work in 2002. His work has encompassed many subjects, but has been focused recently on coastal landscapes and cityscapes of Boston. Whether painting a still life set up in his studio, or painting a landscape on location, Todd prefers to paint directly from life. He also paints larger landscape paintings in the studio based on information gathered from studies done on location. Todd is a juried member of the Copley Society of Art, the Cape Cod Art Association, and The Oil Painters of America.
