Carolyn Letvin is a painter and printmaker. “Schooled in Flemish Old Master techniques, I have a great respect and admiration for the traditional systems and applications. Currently, I’m using an expanded palette and a bold, active paint application to portray my realities. I experience life, with all its subtleties and intricacies, as a direct, perceptible experience. Therefore, my subjects are what I observe and are all worthy of depiction by virtue of their existence in the world.
