Duncan Reid, Artist/Illustrator

Duncan Reid creates imaginary and contemporary artworks using oil, acrylic, or watercolor. His work is inspired by an unconventional training. Reid’s parents were both artists who met at The Rhode Island School of Design, and he grew up around art and antiques. Though most of his art education comes from this, he has studied at the Rhode Island School of Design and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston. He has also been a graphic artist for more than 30 years, a profession that adds to the variety of techniques in his toolkit.

His illustration work is dominated by water media and drawing. Reid also paints in a variety of mediums on hand assembled, hard panels rather than canvas. He often employs aging or distressing effects to his acrylic paintings. He tends to wrap the work around the edge of the panel treating the paintings as objects, not simply images. In addition to handcrafted work he produces non-linear art books and printed reproductions of his work. His studio is near Boston at The Norwood Space Center.
