Loretta Luglio made the transition from graphic design and commercial art to painting some years ago. Now she lives and works in the eastern United States, particularly Pennsylvania and Maryland. The varied landscape and natural beauty of both areas keeps interesting and inspiring subject matter readily available to be put down on canvas. She paints primarily with oils, though uses watercolor and pastels depending on the demands of the subject.
The influence of her background in design visibly impacts the way in which Loretta Luglio composes and colors her scenes. Her arrangement of shapes and lines serves to focus the eye and lead it through the painting. She uses color theory to carefully craft the right aesthetic and emotional tone, while still balancing impressionism with naturalistic realism.
