Sam Vokey is an oil painter who specializes in landscapes and still life’s and commissioned custom paintings.
Sam has been a successful artist for more than 25 years. He is an elected member of The Guild Of Boston Artists and has won the designation of Copley Master from the Copley Society of Boston. He is a graduate of Bowdoin College in Maine and Middlesex School in Concord, MA.
He attended the R.H.Ives Gammell Atelier in Boston for four years. This was a European style atelier scholarship program that only admitted 5 students at a time. Those students worked closely with a master painter to learn the fundamentals of painting still life, landscape, portrait and figurative work.
His painting style is most closely associated with the Boston School tradition of painting which crosses Realism with some of the softer edges and painterly qualities of Impressionism. Vokey’s still life’s and landscapes demonstrate a strong consideration for creating balance between the overall composition and the light and dark values in his paintings.
