Lou Pasqua, b. 1952, Pittsburgh, PA

 

Lou Pasqua aspired to be a wildlife artist from the age of six. After an education in graphic design and over twenty years working in graphic arts, he changed his focus and returned to his original goal. Through research and experimenting with various painting techniques, he taught himself an impressionistic style that conveyed realism. He applied this method and his natural talent to his favorite pastime, the outdoors. Lou’s paintings were quickly accepted by major galleries and well respected art critics.
