Nick Santoleri grew up in a rural area of Chester County, Pennsylvania, where he developed a fascination with the landscape and colonial architecture found there. Through his often nostalgic paintings, Santoleri hopes to blend past and present. Best known for his richly detailed and realistic watercolor paintings, Santoleri has broadened his creative vision by expanding both his subject matter and his artistic media. His expansive portfolio includes landscapes, still-life, and portraits in watercolor, oil, acrylic, pencil, and pen and ink. Santoleri is a member of the Philadelphia Sketch Club and continues to develop his artistic talent with classes at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. The artist’s twenty-five-year career of publishing fine limited edition prints from his original paintings has earned him a national reputation.
