Don Rainville was born in Salem, Massachusetts in 1960. After studying forestry in college, Rainville entered the world of high end antique and art restoration, honing colorist skills and the ability to experiment with diverse materials; the consistent nature of such refined work is a direct contrast to Rainville’s approach to his paintings. Utilizing action painting techniques, Rainville takes his inspiration from infinite forms of wild landscapes to create dynamic and expressive depictions of nature.
Rainville exhibits throughout the New England region, and has shown at the Cahoon Museum on Cape Cod, the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, New Hampshire, and the University of Connecticut in Stamford. Rainville presently maintains his studio in the coastal town of Camden, Maine.
