Born in England, LOUISE LEFKOVITS moved to the US in 1978, and settled in the beautiful Hudson Valley region of New York in 1983. Louise earned Bachelor and Master’s degrees in Art Education at SUNY New Paltz. She retired in 2016 after teaching in the Hyde Park and Kingston School Districts for 20 years.
Louise considers herself a mixed media artist. She has taken multiple printmaking workshops at the Womens’ Studio Workshop and the Woodstock School of Art, focusing on monotype and collagraph techniques, and has exhibited her work in many local galleries.
Her work is inspired by landscapes of Cornwall in England, as well as places she visits. These scenes are interpreted realistically in her paintings and abstracted in her prints and collages. Please check out her video featuring her handmade canvas mats used for pet bowls, floors, table settings and children’s art projects.
