"New Bedford has made it possible for me to connect resources to become a full-time artist. With the continued support of the community I can continue to connect and create necessary resources to the obvious needs of our city's youth and their families. Thank you New Bedford.” — Fitzcarmel LaMarre

Fitz's creative career began as a graphic designer and with the opportunity to chase a childhood dream he decided to pursue a traditional art career painting.

In pursuit of honing the craft and networking he created a series called The Ambassadors of Peace featuring portraits of Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., John F. Kennedy and Bob Marley to begin his painting portfolio.
