Ingrid Arnet Connidis enjoys painting indoors and out and is especially drawn by colour. Old homes, trees, local and international landscapes, animals and crows have all been featured in her work. Ingrid usually paints with oils or acrylics, inspired by real life, pencil and charcoal sketches, photos and her imagination. Her paintings reflect the contentment of being in natural settings and of sharing the stories that her subjects have to tell. Ingrid’s recent work includes a series on trees that reflects her respect for the many ways that they sustain us and enrich our lives.
Another current series portrays strangers discovered in old photos who feel familiar through shared time and experience. Ingrid works at Studio III in Old East Village, along with Moira Burke and Catherine Eichstedt.
