GALLERY

A collection of Stella's work from over the years

A Note from Stella:

"No matter WHO you are, artistic expression cannot be taught - it comes from within.  What can be taught is color theory, drawing, principles and elements of art.  Each painter then uses those learned skills together and expresses themselves.  Through the years, I have studied the books and painted with the bests - Alzora Zaremba, Andrew Orr, Barbara Jensen, Ruth Cooper and others - and then evolved my own style of painting.  After teaching over 40 years, I learn also from the students and each classroom.  Helping others through challenges makes me a better painter also.  From my dear friend Jeanne Papa, I learned patience and creative yet mathematical design skill, making the subject matter fit the piece."

Q: Why do you paint?

A: Because it is my attempt to recreate the beauty God has put on this earth

These pieces are NOT for sale.  However, Stella can create an original piece for you - see CUSTOM ORDERS.
