Loretta Domaszewski is a Contemporary Impressionist oil painter and workshop instructor who creates visual poetry. Spirit of place is the inspiration for majestic landscape paintings with a deeper interpretation of the “journey”, the personal quest. Expressive oil paintings draw you in, as to explore the personal intimacy of the illuminated pathway.
Originally influenced by the light, colors and techniques of Master Post-Impressionists and the Fauvists, Loretta first learned about color with soft pastels through plein air painting. For over 25 years she has painted with oils where her techniques have developed, influenced by the sensual brushstrokes of Renoir and Monet, expressive color notes of Gauguin, bold brushstrokes of Van Gogh, and the dramatic abstracted atmospheric skies of Turner, including several American Abstract Expressionist Painters.
The desire to explore and expand new ideas, Domaszewski concentrates on the act of painting; meditating, visualizing, creating expressive fluid gestures with bold saturated color, and rich texture. Influenced by changing elements in nature she paints en plein air, alla prima, conceptualizing larger works in the studio. As a naturalist, the preservation of wetlands and the importance of conservation have been a passion of the artist since her youth.
Loretta Domaszewski was born in the outskirts of NYC, raised on the shoreline in Greenwich, Connecticut. She spent her childhood exploring the diverse beach terrain, trails, boatyards, and Long Island Sound fishing in small wood crafted boats. Loretta aspires to show annually in exhibitions that benefit non-profit organizations. This endeavor has been a life long pursuit, a way to educate and support community.
Domaszewski has a BFA from Tufts University and the Boston Museum School of Fine Arts, including a K-12 Teaching Certification from Brandeis University.
