“I am primarily a studio artist. While much of my inspiration comes from the world around us, the majority comes from within. I believe that we are primarily spiritual beings, and as such we are intrinsically connected to all that is “creation”. I’m a big fan of beauty – that is my primary focus. Beauty is all around us. It can be seen as well as felt and experienced with all the senses. When creating a piece of art I draw from what I see in nature and what I see with the eyes of the heart - combining the two, I hope to touch the emotional as well as the visual senses.” David Costello studied at the San Francisco Art Institute, the San Francisco Art Academy and the Carmel Art Institute. His work has been exhibited in Europe and the US, winning numerous awards. A native of Massachusetts, David worked as Graphics Editor for a daily newspaper before starting his own graphic design business in Lexington. In 2011 David and his wife Jeanne (also an artist) moved to Freeport. David works primarily in soft pastel. He is a member of the Pastel Society of America and is locally represented by Yarmouth Frame & Gallery.
