“Paint what you like” was the best bit of advice Paul Mogan received when he first started working in watercolor fine art. His lifelong affinity for anything maritime and in particular the New England Coastal scene is a common thread in his work today. He is a longtime mariner who holds an active USCG Captain’s License. He is dedicated to lifelong learning and self-improvement as an active member of painting groups and workshops. His maritime watercolors ask viewers to assimilate details and interpret the scene based on their own experience. His maritime paintings have garnered awards and have been juried into many shows including The New England Watercolor Society Regional and National Open Shows. His work has been collected by both individuals and corporations. His studio and residence overlook salt marshes in the charming seaside town of Scituate on Cape Cod Bay, Massachusetts.
