Biography


Primarily a landscape painter, Stacey lives in an area that is close to the Adirondacks, the Finger Lakes, and the Mohawk Valley where the beautiful scenery often becomes her subject matter. Her paintings capture the colorful sunsets, ever-changing clouds, flowing rivers and creeks, lush farm land dotted with old structures, and gentle hills located in upstate New York. 
 
As seasons change, so do the colors, textures, and shadows in a scene. Winter brings snow, cold, ice, and dark days while Spring brings yellow-greens found in the new leaves and splashes of purples and yellows with blossoming trees, bushes, and plants. Summer brings long, hot, humid days, dry grass, and cool shadows while glorious Fall brings a celebration of festive colors as leaves wave so-long. These things and more are what connect Stacey to a location where she translates her experiences into pastel and oil paintings to share with others. Working in small formats (6x6") or larger, Stacey uses a variety of brushstrokes, color, and light to communicate a place and time with the viewer. 
 
For 31 years she taught art to high school students. Now, Stacey focuses full time on her painting,  and participates in group and solo exhibitions as well as a variety of plein air festivals in the region. Her work is in many collections around the nation, Canada, and the United Kingdom. 
 
She is an active member of the Genesee Valley Plein Air Painters. GVPAP is a plein air artist association, which promotes and inspires quality plein air painting. Incorporated in 2006, Genesee Valley Plein Air Painters Inc. members are practicing, experienced plein air artists. 
 
When not painting, Stacey enjoys spending time with her family as well as camping, kayaking, hiking, fishing, golfing, and reading.
