Description:  A soulful collection of original paintings, drawings, art prints and cards

A soulful and meditative collection of original artwork. Alcohol ink and mixed media paintings, art prints, and cards. Denise Balcanoff, born and raised in New York City, developed a passion for art at a very young age. Her parents often took her to the many art museums, enrolled her in art classes, and eventually she was accepted into the H.S. of Art & Design in Manhattan. Upon graduation she continued to study art at Buffalo State College while earning her teaching degree in Special Education and Elementary Education. Denise now resides in Bloomfield, CT where she raised her family with her husband, Steve, and recently retired from a 33 year teaching career. As a parent, she found herself walking in her parents’ footsteps, exposing and encouraging her own children to love and gain an appreciation of art. As a teacher, Denise shared her love of art by infusing it into her classroom. Through art her young students enjoyed expressing their creativity, developed fine motor skills, and learned to take risks in a non-threatening, joyful environment. Now, as a retiree, she is still sharing her passion for art with others. When she is not drawing or painting for her own enjoyment, she takes on adult and young adult students, teaching them to relax and release the stresses of the day through art!
