Biography from Dana Gallery:
Wesley Drake was born in Buffalo, New York in 1970 and, from a young age, moved frequently to different cities due to his father’s work; which seems to be the root of the strong sense of wanderlust that he possesses today.  His travels have taken him to China, Argentina, Italy, France, Seychelles, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Costa Rica and more, supplying an endless source of subject matter for painting.  “Travel opens the door to discovering different cultures, architecture, culinary experiences and ways of life that I can’t help but want to translate onto canvas,” Wes says.

While acquiring his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, with honors, Wes Drake solidified his artistic foundations and discipline in traditional painting methods.  Upon moving to Chicago, he discovered the 100-year old Palette and Chisel Academy of Fine Art to be a great place to continue honing his skills with the community of artists found there.

Wesley Drake is a traditional representational painter passionate about exploring different places and cultures and translating those experiences onto canvas. He will most often be found painting en plein air—French for "in the open air"—where he can not only observe the interaction of light and color, but also have the emotional connection with the subject that painting from life creates.

Today, Wes lives in Chicago (which happens to be a great hub for international travel) with his wife Leesa, their 7 cats, their dog, Mikey, 2 turtles Ping and Jong, Oliver the Russian red-footed tortoise, and Hogan, the rabbit.  They love to travel frequently, run marathons and take on any new adventure thrown their way.
