Contemporary realist Eli Cedrone is a graduate of the School of Art & Design at Suffolk University in Massachusetts, and has also studied in Italy, and at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Her professional career began as an art director at Saatchi & Saatchi Advertising, Bermuda, and was followed by work as an illustrator and editorial designer in Laguna Beach, CA.  She works primarily in oils, and feels it is important to work from life, though she does sometimes employ other references, including memory painting.  Cedrone and her husband live in a suburb of Boston, with their daughter, and two beloved Boston Terriers, named Sargent and Sorolla.

"I'm drawn to the human form where figures exist both in representational and painterly worlds. Ul-timately my concerns are with the expressive qualities of light captured with paint."

Beautifully painted.

I think it's wonderful. The suggested background and the indication of the reflective surfaces on the right are very subtle.

No words, amazing technic... Clearly you have a great sense of art and the light is absolutely well painted. Congrats!
