Welcome to the “Color of Love”, a series for the month of February featuring guest artists and other surprises. A series of colorful ideas, expressions and artistic views!
I’m excited to introduce a talented local artist from my neighborhood. Lisa, attended Nazareth College and then obtained her Masters in Art History while studying in Florence, Italy. A closet artist who volunteered at museums and worked in art galleries, allowing her precisionist persona to shine and hide her inner artistic inclination. Finally, after years of traveling and searching, she settled back home in Rochester NY and decided to integrate her passion and professional life through portraiture with graphite and colored pencils. As a portrait artist, she enjoys the challenge of portraying texture, a sense of realism, and capturing the personality of her subject. Better yet is the variety of her work through children, animals, weddings, and other special occasions and relationships. Education:
Please welcome todays guest of honor, Lisa Szkolnik:
Who doesn’t love a challenge? As an artist, I enjoy the challenge of
creating texture with graphite and colored pencils. My greatest joy is
creating commissioned portraits – knowing that every drawing will find a
wonderful home. After studying art history in Florence, Italy and traveling
America, I finally returned home to Rochester to pursue my love of art.
What “Color of Love” Mean to Me:
In a drawing, for me the color of love is the subject itself. People
commission portraits of the ones that they cherish most in their lives,
both human and animal. It’s these important subjects that will share our
joys and sorrows, and give each of us colorful meaning in our lives.
Thank you Lisa for sharing your art with us!
