Jose Ramirez is a watercolor and oil painting artist, originally from Guatemala, and currently living in Dorchester County MD.
He began his career as a professional artist in 2009, after attending the Manuel Herrarte Lemuz art school in Chiquimula Guatemala. He began exhibiting his art at the age of twenty-one, and since then has enjoyed considerable success.
Today, he is a plein air and studio painter using both mediums. As an artist, he has found the creative inspiration he desires, and the ability to communicate his excitement and love for nature, people and everything that surrounds him.
After moving to the United States in 2012, he has been developing a unique style that’s smooth and realistic. His intention is not to create a photo realistic image of a scene, but to capture the feeling evoked by his subjects.
After becoming a member of the Academy Art Museum based in Easton MD, attending open studios to draw portraits and human figures from life, has been an important part of his artistic training.
Jose Ramirez is also a member of the Plein Air Painters of Chesapeake Bay located in Easton MD.
