About the artist.....
My name is Larry Schwin and I've been fascinated with houses and buildings for as long as I can remember. I started out at a very young age drawing in crayons, of course!
I have a Masters degree in Historic Preservation from Columbia University and a Masters degree in Architecture from the University of Washington in Seattle. For well over 35 years, I had a wonderful career in both architecture and historic preservation and have worked on many historic structures across the country. Today, I've continued my interests as a consultant for historic societies and as a consultant in elder living options.
I've enjoyed living in Manhattan, Seattle, San Francisco and on the north shore of Boston where my husband and I restored an historic c. 1800 house.
I'd love to chat with you about your special project, whether it
is for a portrait of a house, a church, a business property or any other special building that you have in mind. I love buildings of all types,
This very photogenic house, known as The Burnham-Goodhue House, was constructed in a New England village around 1800. I drew this portrait soon after we sold our well-loved home in 2012.
I look forward to working with you
on your project!
