David Bottini's work can be described as "classic realism with a romantic viewpoint." His approach begins in direct observation and is enhanced and developed in the studio using a traditional glazing approach. His work draws from his training in classical realism as well as a post-modern sensibility. Bottini obtained his M.F.A. from SCAD, and has exhibited in Georgia, Maryland, Virginia, Florida, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C. He has been featured in Who's Who in American Art and Southern Accents Magazine.
