Frederick Vocino

Grand Rapids, MI, United States

I grew up in Southeast Michigan. Encouraged by my K-12 teachers, I went on to get a BFA from Wayne State University. Work obligations away from visual arts dominated my time for the next few decades. Yet, there was always a project in my home studio waiting for me, reminding me of the importance of art in our lives. The things I created captured moments in my family life - actually and symbolically. As I am nearing the time of my retirement from work in labor relations, I anticipate a return to larger studio spaces and larger art-works. My submissions this year refer to my favorite outdoor activity, and some well loved cats (my wife's childhood tabby, and my sister's recently lost Abyssinian).
