Loretta Luglio is an extremely talented representational artist. Her works resonate with beautiful color, form, tone and composition.
Loretta says "I am a full time representational artist, executing most of my work primarily in but not limited to oil. I occasionally work in pastel and watercolor. My work is inspired by all that is around me. I prefer to paint scenes from every day life.
Art has always been a passion of mine. I knew from a very early age that art was going to be a strong influence in my life and that I wanted to know as much about art as I could possibly learn. I still strive to learn something new every day. After many years working in commercial art, making a living as a graphic artist for Lockheed Martin, I opened my art studio to the dedication of purely traditional art.
I work from photographs taken by me, acquired snapshots, client family photos and some life drawing. Often working in series, my work progresses through various themes so I always have a new challenge.
I attended Graphic Design of Delaware Valley (GADV) and, later in my career, the Art Institute of Philadelphia for graphic and web design and Flash web-based software for marketing trade shows and website application.
I have attended several workshops and studied traditional painting under Robert Spriggle and later, Juanita Crosby (former owner of The Firehouse Gallery located in Bordentown, NJ), both of New Jersey.
I have 2 studios. My primary studio is in Bucks County, PA where I am active in the local art scene. I also spend a good portion of my time on the Eastern Shore of Maryland where I spend much of the summer. I consider myself blessed to be surrounded by such a variety of nature. The wetlands of the Eastern Shore are reflected in much of my work. The natural beauty of both areas provides an abundance of subject matter.
I continue to exhibit in regional and national shows. My works have been exhibited in Bucks and Delaware County in Pennsylvania, Stockton, New Jersey and Maryland's Eastern Shore. My work has sold in Europe and Australia and are in permanent private collections throughout the United States.
Personally, I find Loretta's last comment very profound.
"I once had an art teacher who described art as being another language - the language of vision. This thought has lingered with me over the years and I've come to believe that this is very, very true."
Yes, I adore sunflowers!
Sumptuous colors and attention to important detail really stand out to me in the paintings of Loretta Luglio.
It has been a glorious pleasure to feature Loretta's works, and I wish her the best in what already is a very thriving art career.
