Bob Graham was born in Canton, Texas in 1947. He studied art at North Texas State for four years. In 1970, Bob traveled north to Provincetown, MA. There he studied with the famous Impressionist painter Henry Hensche at the Cape School. Hensche was the student of Charles Webster Hawthorne himself the student of William Merritt Chase. Bob started teaching in 1974 and has lived and worked in New Orleans for more than 30 years.

“I visited New Orleans twice in the late seventies. I did not feel at first that I could bear to leave my portrait business in Atlanta. Things were going very well for me. But the pressures of parenthood were a lot for a single parent, and I came once more to the Big Easy.”
