"The paint hypnotizes me as it reveals something that could not be expressed in words. Forms slowly reveal themselves as already having been there. Like a dance with inner conversation, painting for me, is the languge of feelings and self awareness." PiA DiStefano <br /><br />Since I was very young, I have been fascinated with expression through color and images. I was born with the desire to create art. I traveled extensively through Europe, Africa and Asia. In 1999, I was awarded a stipend to travel to Morocco to paint with a group of artists. I spent the summer of 2000 in Katmandu, Nepal volunteering for Helping Hands (a free clinic for the poor people of Nepal). While there, I sketched many of the patients. All of these experiences and travels have sharpened my artistic vision and aided me in understanding the value of art in the world. <br /><br /> I have studied at Parsons, NY, Oregon State, OR, West Valley College, CA, SMFA, Boston, Wellesley College, MA, The Angel Art Academy, Italy, and with Daniel Greene, NY. <br /><br />My work has been exhibited in California, Massachusetts, New York, Oregon, and Denmark. <br /><br />My studio is located in Florence, Italy. <br /><br />To view a full portfolio of my work, please visit <a href="http://www.piastudio.com">http://www.piastudio.com</a>.
