ABOUT THE ARTIST

Biography

Concetta E Volpe is known for the illustrious colors on her palette. Her paintings are commissioned by private collectors and are displayed in homes and offices throughout the United States.

Her portrait artwork has also  been published on t-shirts, sold in music stores and worn by Chris Robinson lead singer of "The Black Crowes" rock band.

As a young artist Concetta won prizes for her art and drawings in elementary school. Growing up in New England, she has spent many summers at the beach and has traveled throughout the United States, Nova Scotia and British Columbia, Canada. She is inspired to capture nature with its wondrous colors and all its subtleties of light and dark shades by her travels to the Appalachian and Blue Ridge Mountains. Although, her career started with portraits and fashion designs, her travels have developed her interest in landscapes created in multi mediums. She often prepares her own linen using the old master technique of rabbit skin glue to size the linen and seal it with a white oil ground. 

Concetta is an avid "en plein air" painter where she believes in capturing the atmospheric light and true colors of nature. She also enjoys portraits and is appreciated for both her technical skill at capturing the outward likeness of her subjects, as well as for the sensitive and insightful portrayal of their characters and personalities. 


 She has won many awards for her paintings including "Best in Show" for the Art  Society of Old Greenwich 2012 Juried show theme “Scapes Galore,” and she also has won four 1st place awards for her landscapes. 


Concetta received her art education with John Phillip Osborne and at Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts.  She also has studied with Enzo Russo, Denis Lyall, and Stephen Douglas with the Greenwich Art Society and Greenwich Continuing Education in Greenwich, CT.
