ACRYLIC PAINTING


  Robert Lawrence Bucci , the son of an animator and commercial artist was exposed to art at a young age. Starting at 9 years-old, he was enrolled in art classes at Barnsdale Art and spent several years being exposed to the physical attributes of the art world. 


He received an Environmental Design Degree at California State Polytechnic University, and pursued a successful career in Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Design and Community Planning. 


Midway through his career, he re-discovered the art which he enjoyed as a child and ventured into the art world once again. Studying with Orange County artists Michael Hallinan,  Alice Leggett, and countless workshops, he refined his artistic abilities and is presently pursuing his dream of an art career.


"I have always designed what pleases me and subsequently has pleased my clients and I carry that into my art. I have to like the subject in order to successfully create it on canvas." ~Bob
