ARTIST’S STATEMENT

One of Eva Rogoff’s earliest masterpieces was a paint-by-number set on a velvet board.  The scene was of swans on a pond. The swans were only partially painted, as intended by the outline.  Perhaps this was her first exposure to impressionism technique.  In her adult years, she has done a five-year study of Claude Monet and has painted similar compositions to some of his murals and paintings of his gardens, water lily ponds and boats and a cliff view along the Seine River.

Eva has transitioned to doing original works as suggested in art seminars she took at the Ultimate Artist’s Conference in Palm Springs, CA in 2002. She takes a lot of photographs when traveling and locally of landscapes and seascapes and uses them as references in her creation of original watercolor and oil paintings. She enjoys painting the occasional still life.

In addition to the Ultimate Artist’s Conference Eva attended in Palm Springs, CA, in 2002, she has learned about painting and other art forms through practice and in classes at Trumbull High School, Adelphi University, NY (B.A., psychology), and the Westport Center for Senior Activities.  Eva also has a teaching degree from Sacred Heart University (M.A.T.).

Art associations, of which Eva Rogoff has had memberships, are the Fairfield County Arts Association, SCAN, CT Classic Arts, Easton Arts Council, Ridgefield Guild of Artists, and the Milford Arts Council. This has enabled her to exhibit and sell her art throughout the region and beyond. Her most dedicated commitment has been to the Fairfield County Arts Association.  Eva has served on and off as the association’s President and Treasurer for more than twelve years.
