Matt Fenton is a fine watercolor, oil, pastel artist specializing in cityscapes, railroad scenes, and scenic vistas. His interest in painting and drawing started at a young age when he was influenced by the paintings he saw visiting the Baltimore Museum of Art.
Matt happily resides with his wife Laura in Maryland, where he finds inspiration every day.
His formal art education began in the 1970s at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). Matt has continued studying art and exhibit at the Mitchell School, School 33 for the Arts, the Zoll Studio, the Schuler School of Fine Art, and the Art Students League of New York.
Matt is also a Professional Civil Engineer but now devotes his full attention to fine arts painting. His engineering training helps him take a technical approach to his paintings.
He has had a life-long fascination with landscapes, mainly urban and railroad scenes, although he also paints still life and portraits. His watercolor and oil landscapes provide windows into New York, Baltimore, and the Chesapeake region. Many of his paintings offer a nostalgic glimpse at the golden age of American trains. He favors a realist style with an emphasis on impressionistic brushwork.
