Bobby Anderson was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and came to Vermont 35 years ago. As a youth, Bobby spent his summers on Cape Cod; his love of nature and his experiences on the Cape have inspired many of his paintings. After leaving Massachusetts, Bobby lived in Montgomery, VT for 30 years where he developed his skills as an artist. Bobby's early works -in pen and ink- included commissions and producing the Montgomery annual calendar. An appreciation for the effects of mood and atmosphere that could be achieved with watercolors moved Bobby to become a self-taught water-colorist, the medium that he now works in exclusively. Mr. Anderson, delighted to be a member of the Artists In Residence Co-op, now lives in Enosburg, VT.
