Georgia Stathoulas In my paintings, I strive to capture the simple moments in time and depict the world around me as I see it. I paint images that catch my eye and stimulate my imagination. Although much of my inspiration comes from the beautiful seascapes of my homeland Greece, children are the central focus of my work as I strive to capture their innocence, playful nature and jeweled personalities with the strokes of my brush.
My favorite media is oil and even though I have worked with a variety of other media, I ultimately prefer to paint with oils as I find them to be more forgiving. I work mostly from photographs that inspire me and reflect a small part of me and my background. Growing up in Greece, I did not have the opportunity to study art in school and as a result, I did not discover my passion for painting until later in my life.
Participating in art shows provide me with the opportunity to connect with other talented artists who share their knowledge with me.Painting is my refuge, my way to relax and it provides me with the opportunity to connect and to appreciate the colorful world around me.
My work has been displayed in exhibitions throughout Connecticut and abroad. I am a member of the Connecticut Women Artists, Inc., New Britain Museum of American Art and the West Hartford Art League.
