Artist who grew up in Plainfield is a rising star

Kyle Bartlett, who grew up in Plainfield, is making a big impression as a rising artist.

Kyle was featured in The Boston Globe this weekend as an up-and-coming artist (see the online story here).

Bartlett and his siblings lived in Plainfield on Loraine Avenue near Osborne and later on Charlotte Road. His parents, Phil and Karen Bartlett, were neighbors of and good friends with Councilor Cory Storch and his wife Lois Mattson.

Kyle is a graduate of Holy Cross College, where he launched his career as an artist with a successful senior show. His focus has been on oceanscapes, landscapes and portraiture, but he has also been commissioned for commercial pieces. You can see a sampling of Kyle's portfolio online here.

Congrats to Kyle and to Phil and Karen, who were in town for a recent visit.
