Rose & Berries
Shelley Doppelt Holtzman (BFA 1978)
My background as a NYC advertising art director and graphic designer, along with my love of color and contrast inform all my work. This piece is one in a series of floral watercolors, an ideal medium to achieve vibrancy, blending and luminosity. I'm drawn to close-ups as they intensify value and shape. Flowers are delicate and ephemeral, yet powerful.
This work is featured as part of Future Former: An Exhibition of Alumni Work.
