David Costello Biography

In 2011 David Costello moved his home and studio to Freeport Maine (USA) after being in the Boston Massachusetts area for over 30 years. During the early 1970's David lived in France and Italy where he exhibited his work in various European countries, winning a number of international and regional awards.

Upon returning to the United States, David continued to show his work in various areas of the country. In 1980, he accepted a position as illustrator at the Lowell Sun, a daily newspaper in New England, where he rose to the position of Graphics Editor before establishing his own successful Graphic Design business, located in Lexington, Massachusetts. In addition to working with the local community, DC Graphics also sold original T-shirt designs to various national catalogs, Macy's of New York, and many boutiques across the country.

Since 1994 David has resumed his full time attention to the Fine Arts.
