Artist: Denise Gieseke Penizzotto
With her detailed narrative paintings, Denise focuses on the human experience. With sense of humor and optimism she assures us that while life can be tragic and even at times deceptive, it can also be beautiful, magical and alive with hope.
Denise Gieseke Penizzotto, born in a rural community, began her art career when she discovered the Encyclopedia Britannica and a watercolor tin. She caught the travel bug as a young adult and began exploring first the neighboring country, cities, states and then abroad. Her travels included painting outings, which lead to professional projects, which lead to a life in the arts. She is a self-taught artist.
Denise has resided in NYC for 20 years.
