Award winning artist, Roberta Remy, whose work can be found in corporate and private collections throughout the US, Brazil and Europe, attended Parsons School of Design, School of Visual Arts and the Art Students League of New York where she studied painting with master painters Frank Mason, George Passantino, David Leffel, and Sherrie McGraw; and drawing and anatomy with Robert Beverly Hale. Previously a New York based illustrator, whose clients included Macmillan Publishing, Playskool, Cabbage Patch Kids, and McDonalds, she now makes Santa Fe, New Mexico home base where she's been expanding her teaching activities since 1995. When I fell in love with painting, it was the Old Masters and the American Impressionists that inspired my artistic search. Their traditions and techniques are the standards that I have set for myself. It's my endless quest to learn how they accomplished their magic. I strive to develop my craft to the highest standard.I feel a great reverence for the basics and for the time and care devoted to the entire process necessary to create a work of art.With each work, I seek to deepen my understanding of the language of drawing...to explore the beautiful, mysterious and magical qualities of light...to paint it, and to capture its endless variations andeffects...to bring to my paintings the illusion of sculptural form through the play of light upon the subject...to explore how atmosphere envelopes the whole natural beauty of the subject...to give life to the work with a strong painterly quality. Finally, when I paint my subject, I fall in love with its finest and best qualities. I perceive its nobility and elegance; whether it's and old man, a little child or an apple. At that time, the light and the subject becomes the important focus, to be expressed in the most moving and spiritual interpretation. When I teach my students now, I remember the wonderful and generous instructors that I have been fortunate to have. I try to follow the tradition and "pass it on."
