Shirley Mae Neu
My paintings reflect my passion for life and color. When I begin to paint, I often do not have a set plan in mind. Many spontaneous endeavors have given birth to canvases filled with movement, emotion, and a contemporary style that I feel gives my work a unique flair.
Risk taking and experimentation with a variety of mediums and techniques continues to lead me down new paths. The versatility of my endeavors reflects my belief that each day of my life is unique and a gift.
I received my Bachelorís Degree in Fine Arts from Queens College, NY and earned my Art Educator Certification from Central Connecticut State University in New Britain. I have held Art Educator positions within the West Hartford Public School system. I have also enjoyed working as an Art Activities Director at Renbrook Schoolís Summer Adventure Camp in West Hartford.
I am currently on the Board of the Canton Artistsí Guild. The exhibition opportunities at the Gallery on the Green and the members are an endless source of creative inspiration.
