Yvonne PECOR Mucci
As a resident of Southern New Jersey, I have the good fortune of being surrounded by beautiful shore lines, rich farm lands and picturesque towns. These diverse landscapes allow me, as a regional artist, great opportunities to draw upon for much of my work.
My goal in painting is to recapture my initial feeling for a subject and convey that to the viewer. It is wonderful when someone tells you your painting caught their eye and held their interest. To me, my paintings let another person see through my eyes.
Whether holding a brush or not, I am constantly painting, always studying a subject that has caught my eye. Before I know it, I am mentally composing a painting. Taking notes, sketching, photographing, and figuring out how I’ll build the pigments to capture the play of light and shadow. I like clean, bright colors, and using lots of layers to achieve beautiful luminous paintings.
Originally from Chicago, I have made Southern New Jersey my home for over 35 years. My formal art training was at the American Academy of Art in Chicago where I studied both commercial and fine art. It was at the Academy, learning from Irving Shapiro, that my love for watercolor painting emerged. I love the challenge of this unpredictable medium. I am active in Salem County and Gloucester County Art Leagues.
Linda D’Urbano is a successful local artist and native of southern New Jersey. Her love of art began at an early age as she experimented with a variety of mediums and eventually fell in love with watercolor. Linda still finds watercolor fresh and exciting. She continues to grow as an artist studying at the Fleisher Art Memorial in Philadelphia and with well known artists including Roberta Carter Clark, Howard Watson, James Toogood, Tom Lynch, Frank Eber and Marie Natale.
Linda exhibits her work in galleries and participates in art shows in and around Southern New Jersey, recently receiving Second Place in an exhibit at the Smithville Mansion Annex Gallery. Her work is featured in private collections in the USA and abroad. She has been commissioned for a number of pieces.
Linda is a member of the Gloucester County Art League, where she held the office of Secretary and currently contributes to the newsletter. She lives in Mullica Hill, New Jersey, with her husband and two children.
