"My husband and I are filled with joy every time we look at the beautiful painting created for us by Cody. It was such a pleasure to have her involved, taking her time to walk us through the entire process, and making sure to incorporate everything we wanted." - P.M.
I began painting in 2003, studying traditional oil painting at the Ridgewood Art Institute under master painters. I then spent time in Paris, France, learning plein air painting (outdoor painting) before earning a bachelors degree in fine arts in 2009. Since then, I have worked as a professional contemporary artist and have been featured in many exhibitions, publications, and interviews. While my contemporary work experiments with different mediums, I always seem to return to my traditional oil painter roots at the end of the day.
