Constance Edwards Scopelitis

Constance has a fine arts degree from Indiana University . Her formal training continued at the Art Students League in NYC and culminated in the award of a Fellowship Grant to the Vermont Studio Center for "Emerging American Artists".

Constance describes her work as "passionate and driven". She says "I have been bound by an historical standard of precision and skill in the world of portraiture. These experiences qualify me to gain the likeness of my subject and render the human figure with accuracy. It is this mastery that has kept my portrait business flourishing for more than twenty years."

Between portrait commissions, Constance creates contemporary figurative paintings that posess a lyrical, dreamlike quality. Her style of magical realism contains neo-classical elements, subliminal imagery and symbols that represent ancient mythology or personal storytelling.
