Dennis grew up in Gloucester Massachusetts and soon became part of the long line of Cape Ann’s contribution to American impressionist painters. He began his studies in high school and then went to Butera School of Art in Boston, returning to Cape Ann to become the first student studying the Atelier System with John C. Terelak and Ted Goerschner at the newly formed Gloucester Academy of Fine Arts. Later he moved to New York City to study at the Arts Student League, winning the Charles J. Romans Memorial Award at his very first national exhibit at the Allied Artists of America Show.
Dennis received inspiration from artists Don Stone, David A. Leffel, John C. Terelak, Salvatore Fortunato Grasso, Tom Nicholas, and Paul Strisik. A member of the North Shore Arts Association, and Rockport Art Association, he lives in North Berwick, Maine and has a gallery and studio in his home.
