Biography


 
 
 
BIOGRAPHY
 
Toni pursued the study of art after graduating from Fordham University with a degree in psychology.  She attended Pratt Institute and did her graduate studies at Hunter college in Art History.   After attending classes at the Art Students League, Toni started painting again at the Ridgewood Art Institute with Katie Lewis.  Currently, she studies with John Osborne and Danielle Wexler. 
“My experience painting at the ‘Barn’ put my academics into practice. With the use of a prismatic palette, the painting of still life and portraits in north light, and landscapes in plein air, made the practice of painting a lifelong challenge.”

Toni conducted art classes for children from 1995-2009 which included plein air excursions during the summer months and served as art curator for TIC TOC- an organization promoting theater and arts in Bergen County public schools.
Toni is a member of the Salmagundi Club, the Ridgewood Art Institute, Hudson Valley Art Association, American Artists Professional League and the Artists Guild.  Toni has participated in numerous juried exhibitions, most notably at the National Arts Club on Gramercy Park.
