HENRY T. REILLY
Hank was born and grew up in the Boston area. He worked for many years in the real estate business before settling in Montgomery, VT with his late wife, Lona. He has fallen in love with the rural beauty of Montgomery and its people. Hank has been painting since the late 1970's and has studied briefly at the Art Student League in Marblehead, MA. He is essentially self-taught, working in oil primarily on Masonite where he sketches from life or photographs. While most all artists use their hands to work the paintbrush, Hank uses his hands and fingers to manipulate the paint before he even picks up the brush. By now, Hank has amassed over 1,000 paintings at his home studio.
