The Artist Says:

Painting for me is a form of meditation, freeing myself into a spiritual state of mind. Art is an expression, a visual communication, a connection to our universal cosmic soul.


ABOUT THE ARTIST:Born in Paris, France, to a family of artists, Daisy de Puthod has been painting since childhood. In 1975, after graduating from the Colorado Institute of Art, she became a successful commercial artist, illustrating in pen and ink or watercolour for ad agencies and publishing houses. In 1988, she relocated to the Hudson Valley, where she studied portraiture in pastels and oils, exploring a bold and colourful style, "leaning a bit towards Fauvism" as described in a New York Times review of her solo show at the Garrison Art Center, NY. Since 2000, Daisy's main focus has shifted to plein-air painting, participating in a number of juried, nationally recognized plein-air events. She is a Signature member of the American Impressionist Society and the New York Plein Air Painters and a member of the NYC Urban
Sketchers. Her work has found its way into numerous private and public collections, including the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum and the home of the former chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts.
Whether painting her plein-air landscapes or continuing her explorations of studio figures and portraits, Daisy prefers to paint from life.
