Deborah Cotrone, a resident of Connecticut, uses her familiarity and love of the New England countryside as her muse. She absorbs the richness of the changing foliage, sparkling waterfronts, and meandering meadows, transferring her visual inspirations into vibrant impressionist renderings. Cotrone translates what her eyes and mind experience, with swift, deft brush strokes, depicting the ever-changing light and atmosphere that typify the New England landscape. She works to create a mood in her paintings, a romanticized view of the world, which is warm, inviting and infused with color and light. She is a graduate of the Paier College of Art, CT, the Montserratt College of Art, PA and the Academy of Fine Art and Frudakis Academy, PA. Her work can be found in major corporate locations such as The Shawmut Bank of Boston, The Ritz Carlton Hotel of Boston, the Landmark Club of Stamford, CT, the Trefz Corporation, the GE Corporation and over 100 private collections throughout the country. She has been featured in US Art Magazine, Leaders Magazine, and has had numerous articles within both the New York Times and the Greenwich Times publications. Her work is displayed in prominent galleries around the country such as; The Cavalier Gallery in CT, The Debruyne Gallery in FL, The Cooley Gallery in CT, The Ambassador Gallery in NY, The Florence Griswold Museum in CT, The JM Stinger Gallery in NJ and Gallery San Francisco in CA.
