|David Walter Prokowiew is a self-taught artist living in the sleepy town of Lunenburg, Massachusetts. He grew up in the then bucolic
town of Sudbury, Massachusetts, where his childhood wanderings led him along the old stone walls, ancient woodlands and forgotten
marshes of old New England. Later, his love of the outdoors led him to the White Mountains, where he and friends would enjoy hiking and
real back-country camping. He loved to work with his hands and eventually found enough courage to try his hand at boatbuilding-
completing a woodstrip canoe, a sailing/rowing dinghy and a 14' garvey hull with remote steering. Today, he spends much of the summer
and autumn months in various parts of Maine with family, where he finds endless inspiration in the ever changing character of classic
New England landscapes and seascapes.
His early art education was focused on graphic design, enrolling in the Commercial Arts program at Minuteman Technical School where he
was encouraged by his instructors as well as his art teacher to continue his education. He later graduated with honors from Mount Ida
College in Newton, MA, and then from Bentley College in Waltham, MA with a BS in Marketing. He built a free-lance website design and
graphics business at the beginning of the Internet boom and has recently come back to fine arts. A hope that he has something to offer in
the world of art, along with a growing passion for the challenges and strides of the modern realists, especially the work being done by the
"new luminists", has brought David back to the work he'd always hoped he would return to at some point in his life- painting.
