Trish Coonrod has an intriguing artistic background. Her interest in representational art led her to attain an MFA from The New York Academy of Art's Graduate School of Figurative Art, and she subsequently took a position in Jeff Koon's studio as lead painter for eight years. I'd bet that Trish could tell some very interesting stories about life in the artistic fast lane!
Trish recently left New York City for the relative quiet of Ithaca, New York. Her beautifully rendered work is intensely introspective, and the surface calm seems to conceal hidden depths of feeling.
Trish has chosen a favorite painting and an ink wash drawing from 2013 to share with us:
