About the Author

Larry Preston
larrypreston
Born in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1951, Larry Preston spent his teenage years at the Worcester Art Museum viewing the museum's collection of Flemish still life paintings. He tried to imitate their work and in so doing, arrived at the technique he uses today to paint his still lifes and landscapes. Completely self taught, his work evolved over many years. In his late teens, Larry embarked on what became a successful career as a musician. After 20 years in the music business, He ultimately decided to return to his first love, painting. Upon his return, he experimented with many different styles of painting, including surrealism and abstract. Echoing his love of the paintings he saw as a teenager, his desire to paint still lifes and landscapes eventually took over. He chooses to paint those objects he sees around him. Simple, everyday objects that he finds beautiful and that are all to often overlooked.
