Sean Mount

March 20, 2024

Our guest, Sean Mount, is a self-taught oil and watercolor painter, and a naturalist who has been foraging for mushrooms, in particular, all his life. Ornithology is of specific interest to him, too. Known for his paintings of foggy winter woods and sun-dappled creeks, his work builds on the rich legacy of New Hope School Impressionism with honesty and innovative unsentimentally.

Sean received a 2019 fellowship from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts. After a career as a decorative painter and muralist, he spent a decade in New York City working in film and television as a scenic artist. There, he won three Art Director’s Guild Awards for his work on "Mr Robot" and "The Night Of."
