Phil Cusumano

Maritime Artist

Phil Cusumano, marine artist and former commercial fisherman, paints seascapes of the North Atlantic coastline as well as scenes of his native Gloucester’s fishermen, their fishing boats and the scenes of their daily life from the early 1950’s to the present day.  Phil’s attention to detail is one of the most important aspects of his painting to him.  Once he feels he has the detail he begins under-painting in gray and sepia tones and then adds layers of oils until he achieves the color and depth he is looking for.
