Interests and Personality

Biographygraduated from The Art Institute of Boston, where he studied with Norman Baer and Walter Marks. He studied figure and landscape painting privately for 10 years with color master Robert Bliss. Kilroy is especially influenced by the teaching and art of modern master Richard Schmid, whose brilliant, adaptive, grand manner, alla-prima painting techniques and philosophy Kilroy took to heart. John is a member of Richard Schmid and Nancy Guzik painting group, The Putney Painters. He was also inspired to become a painter because of Taos/Denver artists active collectively in the 1970's. Among this group including Ned Jacob, William E. Sharer, Mark Daily, Len Chmiel, and George Carlson. Particularly influential is also San Diego artist John Asaro who gave Kilroy the knowledge of seeing light, color and the working understanding of sculptural form.
