Corcoran's Art
Traditional Artist

James Corcoran

Toledo, OH

I retired as a City Dispatcher Supervisor in the trucking industry. I am self taught and have always loved the world of Art, went to a Vocational High School to study Commercial Art hoping to become a Commercial Artist or a Cartoonist. But as we all know life throw in a situation that sometimes steers you in a different directions.

Have always kept art as a love and hobby. When in the service out of Country in Vietnam, I made up drawings for my Army buddies to send home for Christmas, Birthday, and etc. cards to their families and sweetheart.

Like doing landscapes, places, interesting people, plus cartooning, like pen and ink washes. About the time I retired I started my hand at watercolors, which I found to be very rewarding and fun, learning very day.

Then I decided to join a artist club just to see if I could get my work out on exhibit or display in a gallery into the public eye, to see what they thought or say about it. To my surprise not only got into some shows and exhibits but have won lots of awards there. Learning very day and having fun at what I like to do for once.
