Letizia Gentile

I am a classically trained local artist. Art has been my life-long passion and for the past 10 years I have immersed myself in an intense study of drawing and painting.  I earned a CFA from New York Academy of Art and studied at Long Island Academy of Fine Art as well as workshops and classes, where I developed the technical skills to enhance the creative process to move my visual language forward. My work has been exhibited in various group shows, including: “Take Home a Nude” – Sotheby’s, “SingleFare 4” – Highline Stages, NYC, “Wrap It Up” – Hersh Gallery, Salmagundi Annual Juried Painting Exhibition.

Recently, I won 3rd place in the Connecticut Society of Portrait Artists exhibit “FaceTime” at Bendheim Gallery in Greenwich, CT.  My work was published in PoetsArtists “Adorn Me”. I have sold both locally and internationally.


Artist Statement

For me, painting is meditative.

Every painting session is a gift and an opportunity to observe nature’s beauty in all it’s imperfections and uniqueness.
