Isolde Sarnecki, originally from the Netherlands, currently lives in Raleigh, NC. She received a BFA in Graphic Design from Eastern Michigan University in Graphic Arts and spent 20 years teaching K-4 art.
With a background in graphic design, a pursuit of quilt making, seemed natural. Her quilts have been displayed, throughout the U.S., as well as with the Museum of American Folk Art, and displayed in both Japan and the Netherlands. Her award winning works have been published in books and magazines by Robert Bishop, Family Circle Magazine, Country Living Magazine, and the American Quilter’s Society. 
The story always stood central to her art. But in order to explore and capture light and reveal the expression in the faces of her subjects, Isolde realized that she had to turn to painting. Though Isolde is mostly a self-taught painter, she learned from studying the masters.
She has also taken workshops with Mary Whyte, David Dunlop, Joshua LaRock, Julio Reyes and Kim English.  Recent works have been exhibited with the Oil Panters of America, American Watercolor Society, Watercolor Society of North Carolina and the Michigan Watercolor Society. Her work has been published on such websites as art-competition.net and Artsy Shark and the Portrait Society of America. Her oil paintings and watercolors are currently finding homes in many private collections.
