Dennis Sheehan received his artistic training in the best traditions of the Boston School. With a meticulous emphasis on light and dark values, his fine technique results in paintings reminiscent of the French Barbizon School. Like the nineteenth century predecessor, George Inness, Sheehan is interested in capturing the subtle tone and color harmonies of light during nature's transitional moments. With thickly pigmented surfaces, Sheehan's paintings are highly atmospheric impressions of the historic landscape.
Sheehan's work can be found in numerous private collections including The White House. Born in 1950 in Boston, Massachusetts, Sheehan currently lives and works in Manchester, New Hampshire.
