Jose Ramirez is a watercolorist and oil painter originally from Guatemala. His professional art career launched in 2009, after attending the Manuel Herrarte Lemuz art school in Chiquimula, Guatemala. He began exhibiting at the age of twenty-one and has since enjoyed considerable success. Jose moved to the United States in 2012 and currently resides Dorchester County MD.
Ramirez has developed his style through both plein air and studio painting. His intention is not to create a photo-realistic image of a scene, but to capture the feeling evoked by his subjects. Becoming a member of the Academy Art Museum based in Easton MD, where he attends open figure painting studios, has been an important part of his artistic training. He is also a member of the Plein Air Painters of the Chesapeake Bay located in Easton, MD. Jose has found the creative inspiration that drives his art, and the ability to communicate his excitement about nature, people, and everything that surrounds him.
