Biography
After graduating from the School of Visual Arts in New York with a degree in illustration, Carol continued her studies at the Art Students League with teachers David Leffel and Greg kreutz, under whose tutelage she discovered an interest in chiaroscuro painting. Immersing herself in the art of the past, she was moved by the Barbizon painters whose rich atmospheric work led her to continue her studies at the Ridgewood Art Institute under master landscape painter, John Osborne.Today, inspired by the simple beauty of the smaller works of Chardin, she strives to create lush still lifes that capture the quiet beauty and rhythms that she sees in the shapes of nature. And while Carol enjoys the solitude of her studio, her favorite time is spent painting landscapes on location where she can lose herself and feel at one with her subject.Ms. Fortunato divides her time between her studio in Montclair, New Jersey and plein air painting in Dorset, Vermont and its surrounding area. Her work can be found in collections nationally as well as the UK.  Her still lifes with a focus on the edible are appreciated in the culinary arts world where she was invited to have solo shows in the renowned James Beard House and French Culinary Institute. She is represented in Martha's Vineyard, Mass. by Christina Gallery and exclusively in Southern Vermont at the Three Pears Gallery in Dorset Library2012 National Arts Club2011 Salmagundi Club, NYC 2009 Southern Vermont Arts Center, Manchester VT2009 French Culinary Institute, NYC2009 Hudson Valley Art Association 78th Annual Exhibition2008 Hudson Valley Art Association 77th Annual Exhibition2008 The James Beard House, New York, NY2008  The Cooley Gallery, Old Lyme, CT2007 The Cooley Gallery.
