Paola Mangiacapra

Paola is a retired public school teacher, who has been  painting since 1993. She has studied with prominent local and nationally known watercolorists including Tom Sgouros, Nancy Gaucher-Thomas, Frank Webb, John Salminen, Dominic DeStefano, Irwin Greenberg and the late Arne Lindmark. Paola’s work reflects her passion for casting unique light on familiar places from sketches done on location and supplemental photos. Although a large part of her work is devoted to landscape, cityscapes and maritime scenes, she also works with portraiture and figure painting.
