 Bruce Allan Neville born in Rhode Island and studied at the Boston Architectural Center and Wentworth Institute in Boston, Massachusetts. Neville moved to Cincinnati, Ohio in 1960 and graduated from University of Cincinnati in the DAAP program in 1966 receiving a Bachelor of Science in Architecture.

 When Bruce retired after 40 years as an architect, his wife Nancy (also an artist) gave him a gift of a watercolor workshop, and he was hooked.  Over the years Bruce has taught at Baker Hunt in Covington and has begun giving  workshops.

Neville is a signature member of the Ohio Watercolor Society, Associate member of the American Watercolor Society and the Signature member of the Cincinnati Art Club. Neville has won numerous awards and honors including the RAM Richmond Art Museum Award of Excellence, CAC Viewpoint Award, Boston Mills Award of Best in Show and two years Best in Watercolor at Carmel International in Carmel, IN. Neville has extensive teaching experience at college level at the Cincinnati Art Academy and workshops throughout the Midwest. Bruce is interested in mood and atmosphere and says “when you understand the lighting you are able to make drawings with strong contrasts” .Neville’s style and technique was published in the “ The Watercolor Technique of 23 International Artist”. My goal is to develop not a style of painting but a way of thinking, interpret and being creative. Each painting conveys a unique experience leading the viewer into a new way of seeing and understanding my process.
