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.

What are Pastels?
What are Giclèes?
Giclée printing is a process that uses fade-resistant, archival inks and archival substrates to print on large format printers. Giclée printing is often used by artists to make reproductions of their original two-dimensional artwork, photographs or computer-generated art for resale while preserving the original.
Begin with a high quality digital file, either from professionally scanned film, digital capture or computer created art that has been color worked and profiled for the intended output.
Be printed using state-of-the-art inkjet printers which have been calibrated in a closed-loop color management system.
Be printed with archival pigmented inks, specifically formulated for the substrate.
Be printed on an archival watercolor paper or canvas
Be printed by a master printer, who has demonstrated thorough understanding of color theory and imaging software and who has the experience and artistic talent to interpret and replicate your artistic vision.

Pricing and Shipping
My pastel paintings can be purchased unframed to suit your requirements. Work on paper can be protected with glassine, rolled, and shipped free of charge in a cardboard tube.
When making arrangements for your painting to be framed, I highly recommend that you use reputable framers who have experience in framing original pastel artwork. it is therefore very important that the painting is protected behind glass and that the framers are familiar with pastel framing techniques to avoid any damage.
Strips of fome-cor® (or other museum quality buffer material) are used to raise the mat approximately one eighth of an inch from the surface of the painting so that the mat does not come directly into contact with the pastel surface. Again, a reputable framer will be familiar with this procedure.
I always use and recommend using museum quality acid-free mats and acid-free fome-cor® backing and buffers. The width of the mat varies according to the size of the painting and a reputable framer will be able to advise on suitable proportions for the mat and the frame.
I also highly recommend UV clear glass to protect the painting from damage by sunlight. I use TruVue AR (Anti-Reflective) Reflection Free® or TruVue Reflection Control® glass on all of my artwork.
I always ship using UPS, who also provide the necessary packaging and insurance.
Guarantee of Originality
All of my paintings are signed in the bottom right hand or bottom left hand corner of the painting.
