Artist in Residence: S’zanne Reynolds

S’zanne ReynoldsAfter over a decade of design experience in commercial art with companies like SicolaMartin, GSD&M and Harcourt, Reynolds has ventured out into the world of plein air, or on sight painting, and impressionist fine arts with bold color, brilliant light, strong images and a movement and style uniquely her own bold vision of her surroundings. Her work explores spontaneous approaches to expressionistic landscapes and provocative, vivid profiles in portraits she renders.

Continuing to develop her talents, Reynolds has studied under contemporary masters including Ann Templeton, Peggi Kroll-Roberts, Huihan Liu, Nancy Bush and Robert Johnson. Early influences on her career include Wolf Kahn, Andrew Wyeth, Paul Gauguin, the Blue Rider German expressionists as well as her post-graduate studies in France and in her explorations of Europe.
