J.C. Airoldi earned her BFA from Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston. She led a successful career in commercial graphics for nearly 10 years – creating storyboards, character portraits and special effects animation for several of the nation’s leading computer game companies before pursuing her life long dream of painting professionally in 2002. Armed with a knowledge of balance, scale, color harmony, and texture (the tools of both the painter and the designer), J.C. embarks on each painting as an individual journey. She feels that her paintings are the result of “taking the time” to experience the wonders she finds everywhere in nature. She strives to achieve in her paintings the feelings she has that transcend what the eye immediately records.
