January Artist of the Month, Irene Appleyard


We recently did an artist interview with Irene Appleyard, our Artist of the Month for January 2013. During this month, Irene’s pieces decorated the walls of the Cornerstone Coffeehouse.

Tell us briefly about your background.

I’ve always been attracted to and have loved painting portraits.

How did you first get interested and started in photography?

I started taking art seriously when my children were in high school, then went on to study at the Art Students’ League and the National Academy of Design in NYC.

What has drawn you to your chosen subject matter?

I grew up in Hawaii which, I think, has planted many beautiful colors in my brain!

What is currently your favorite piece in your portfolio?

My favorite paintings in the exhibit are the profile of the young man with the sunset behind him and the one of my daughter with the lilac dress.

I do love doing watercolors though. There are two in the exhibit.
