This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Whether painting treasured American landscapes or people at work and at play, Impressionist Candace Whittemore Lovely presents a pleasing, non-confrontational view of contemporary life.

Her inspiration and technique come from the masters and traditions of The Boston School, America's oldest continuing school of painting. It is a philosophy based on sound drawing, sensitivity to line and values, and an impressionistic observation of light and color.

Born in Vermont, Lovely was drawn to American Impressionism while sitting in an art history class at the University of Vermont when a professor discussed Winslow Homer. Captivated by his work, she recalls feeling devastated when the professor told her that no one taught how to paint anymore. Fortunately, the professor was wrong.

Since 1980, she has studied with masters of The Boston School, including Robert Cormier and Paul Ingbretson. These two prominent artists were students of the late R.H. Ives Gammell, the distinguished teacher and painter who saved The School from almost certain demise in the wave of expressionism that followed World War II

Lovely's vast body of work represents her unique vision, technical ability and boundless energy. The work produced on her well-known painting holidays to romantic coastal locations has captured the hearts and minds of an ever-growing list of patrons.

Her paintings appear in the books, "Realism in Revolution: The Art of The Boston School" and "Interior Visions." The New York Graphic Society and Kennedy Studios have reproduced many of her paintings as limited edition prints and posters for a national and international audience. In addition, her work has been featured in Cape Cod Life and Yankee magazines.

She is a distinguished member of several art organizations including The Copley Society of Boston, America's oldest art association. After receiving her third award in the Society's juried shows, she was accorded the designation "Copley Master" in the summer of 1988.

Lovely lives with her husband, actor J. Rodger Horsey, on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina where she maintains studios.
