Born in 1988, Bobby's formative years were spent in the small (once smaller) town of North Bend, WA. In 2009, he enrolled in the Aristides Classical Atelier at the Gage Academy of Art in Seattle, and completed the four-year program in 2013. After formal training, Bobby began wandering the country and landed for several years in Vermont. Upon returning to the Pacific Northwest, the devastated wildernesses of Washington state began to heavily inform the tone of the work he'd begin to create there.
Bobby currently lives and works in the Seattle area. When not painting or drawing, he frequently tours with his band, DiTrani Brothers and the Hammer of Spring.
