ABOUT ME

My art training started early. At age five I was taught drawing and painting techniques by my artist parents, and went on to win multiple junior art competitions. I concentrated my study on impressionism style and the use of pastels. Through the years, I've developed a unique way of using colors. I paint with rich and pure pigments, often without mixing. My preferred mediums are soft pastel and oil paint. I had the privilege of studying under great artists at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, obtaining her BFA degree in graphic design. I continue to draw and paint, while working as a professional Art Director in advertising. I attend regular life drawing and painting sessions at the Salmagundi club and the Art Students League in NYC. I'm a resident artist member at the Salmagundi club, a member of the American Impressionist Society, Pastel Society of America, National Association of Women Artists, and the American Artists Professional League. I'm a participating member of the Pictor Gallery in Chelsea, NYC. My artworks have been selected and shown in many juried shows around the country, won awards in many of them. I enjoy sharing my art and painting techniques with an audience. Time-lapse videos of my creative process can be viewed on my Instagram account @fangsullivan.

 

I study many other forms of art, including Irish fiddle and ballet. They are essential sources of my inspiration.

 

I give in-person and online demonstrations, as well as group and pric=vate online drawing classes to adults. Please email me for inquiries.
