whose radiant landscapes have achieved widespread acceptance and recognition. Working with soft pastels on handmade board, a direct approach is used to create her "pastel paintings." An internationally published illustrator, graphic designer, art director, and teacher, she has devoted many years to her art career. Corinne’s unique artistic talent began attracting attention when she was chosen to attend the highly selective High School of Art and Design in her native New York City. She went on to attend The School of Visual Arts and holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Fallacaro’s abstract expressionist style gradually evolved into her signature “handwriting” of sparkling impressionism, intensified by her luminous vision of nature.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
CORINNE JO FALLACARO, AN AWARD-WINNING PASTEL IMPRESSIONIST
She is concerned more with capturing the essence rather than the physical reality of a subject, primarily through the use of color and texture. Her brilliant pastels evoke the harmony and feeling she has for her work. She still continues her abstract work depending on mood., subject, and intent. Fallacaro’s work has received numerous awards in juried art shows. Her exhibitions include art galleries in New York City, California, Connecticut and Florida. Private clients and corporations collect her work. Corinne resides in Sarasota, Florida.
