Seth Haverkamp (USA)
Seth has had a passion for art since he was a small child; always sitting in his room and drawing. He continued with his art and graduated with a Bachelor in Fine Arts from Carson Newman College after a year each at Cleveland Institute of Art and Memphis College of Art. In 2005 he studied with internationally known artist Nelson Shanks, at Studio lncamminati. Upon leaving lncamminati he moved to northern Virginia where his career in painting really took off. Living in the Washington DC area has enabled Seth to have a number of one-man shows as well as study with renowned artist Robert Liberace.
Along with interesting and unique still-life paintings Seth has done many commissioned portraits, but it must be said that his chief subject and love is his wife and children. They always take him to new heights of creativity and beauty. Seth was a featured artist in 200Ts American Artist Portrait Highlights publication as well as in International Artist magazine. Seth enjoys realism. He loves color and form and the drama of light and dark. As Seth says, “The meaning? It is found in beauty. At the moment, that’s enough.
