Andrew Lattimore, Lattimore Studio
Andrew Lattimore: As a professional artist for over 40 years, he has remained true to his endeavor, "the pursuit of truthful beauty in human creativity." Born and raised in New York, Andrew has been committed to the practice of fine art since the age of 12, when he began his artistic training. He studied anatomy with Steven Rogers Peck, who wrote the consummate book on anatomy, Atlas of Human Anatomy for the Artist. Peck who was one of his biggest mentors, remained a life long friend. Once he completed his training at The National Academy of Fine Arts in New York, he spent three years in Europe which
became the definitive influence in his professional life. Throughout his artistic career, the human figure has remained his most inspiring subject. "The challenge, the mechanics, and the rendering of the human form leaves no room for error," he says. Represented by Portraits, Inc. for over 30 years, Andrew says, "The challenge of portraiture involves finding out what inherently makes someone unique. I not only want to render their physical likeness but reflect the spirit of the individual as well. This is what makes for a successful portrait." His studio and art school are located in the Hudson Valley Region of New York where he lives and works with his wife, Donna, who is also an artist.
