Stefanie Silverman pastel and mixed media artwork, inspired by nature
 
Statement/Bio

I have always found joy and inspiration in nature. These feelings are reflected in my artwork, which includes impressionistic pastel landscapes and close-up views of nature; more abstract landscapes in mixed media; and collages of found natural objects, vintage books, paper, and paint. People often respond to my work with a feeling of emotional connection as they recognize a familiar scene, a sense of peace and calm as they experience a serene landscape, and an increased awareness and appreciation of the natural world around us.

I have studied art my entire life, taking classes and workshops in different mediums. My paintings have been in solo and group exhibitions and have won awards, and my artwork can be found in numerous private collections. I am an Associate Member of the Pastel Society of America and was previously a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of New Jersey.
