Artist Statement

The creative process and artistic expression form a divine collaboration which result in an evocative pieces of art. I journey through life finding sentimental artifacts which stir fond memories, then try to incorporate them into art which will inspire others or generate similar familial memories. Those artifacts may be of old automobiles, tired architecture, or a meandering stream or coastal scene, but each documented location generates a beautiful portrait and emotion. Most of my work reflects the New England area and agriculture, both of which have given me great strength throughout the years. I am fortunate to live in such a beautiful area and enjoy the support of a wonderful WCA community.

When I am not out painting en plein air in pastel or oil - I am in my newly built studio (http://aliciadrakiotes.com/) or teaching budding artists through classes and workshops in pastel and monotype printmaking at www.mocoart.org

I have been fortunate to have been given the opportunity recently, to share time with elder folks who are receiving care for Alzheimer's related illnesses. There, we share painting days, which encourage them to capture the light and memories of their more youthful days. It is another creative gift that touches each one of us.
