Brent Manuel

Born and raised in the flatlands of northwest Ohio, Brent Maguel was inspired by vast landscapes of great depth. Schooled in art and architecture at Bowling Green State University and The Boston Architectural College, Brent founded Maugel Architects in 1989 and served at President until his retirement from Maugel DeStefano Architects of Harvard and Portsmouth, NH, in 2023. Having embraced, studied, and advanced the “art” in architecture, Brent naturally transitioned his passion for design to the canvas. He calls his style “Lazy Impressionism”, meaning he enjoys the accomplishment of quick paintings that focus on how light celebrates color. Brent is inspired by Homer and Hopper and current New England and Cape Cod artists Margaret Gerding, Paul Schulenburg, and Jim Holland, who often are featured in his favorite gallery, Powers Gallery in Acton. Brent enjoys oil painting, golfing and sailing Cape Cod Bay with his 10 grandchildren. His paintings can be viewed on his Instagram page @ #Breakwater Studios. See example of his painting at right.
