Cecelia Franco-Prentice Oil Painting, Sculpture
About the Artist
I was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Although I was
educated and influenced by formal education, I am, essentially,
self-taught with regard to both technique and the development of my
own style of painting. My interest in painting is centered around the
figure and has evolved into archetypal and symbolic references using
the figure as the focal point in each work.

About the Work
My art is representational in nature. I paint in the neo-classical
tradition with a surrealist edge in terms of, specifically, color, scale, and
placement of light/shadow. My subject matter is intimate and emotional.
I have always loved, honored, and embraced the classical, renaissance,
and surrealist traditions in art.
