Nevin Bossart worked as a chef for over twenty years for the Clyde’s Restaurant Group in Washington DC at Clyde’s of
Georgetown, The Old Ebbitt Grill and The Tombs his professional career turned down a much unexpected path. In January
2005, Nevin was diagnosed with cancer and began his treatment with Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center at
Georgetown University Hospital. During his six week stay, he rediscovered his hobby of painting with acrylics. As his
painting progressed it soon became apparent that this self-therapy was beneficial in his healing process. Upon a successful
recovery from cancer, Nevin decided not to return to the restaurant business, and instead accepted a position as an artist in
residence at GUH. Since July 2008 Nevin has been devoted to staff projects where he introduces the basics of painting in a
simple and relaxed way.
