The colorful art of Stacie Flint transforms bold compositions of everyday themes into a personal world of buoyancy, character, and charm. Her oil and acrylic paintings express a domestic life of quirky imperfection and playful abandon. Set in interiors that are at times congenial and harmonious and at others introduce an air of disquiet, the narrative in this work emerges through animated energy, lively brushwork, and rich visual imagery.
Stacie’s vision consistently offers viewers fun surprises through imaginative representational form and unexpected color. Women may be blue haired and figures distorted, as the work is not about visual reality, but invention. The energetic mood can be high or calm but is always in motion, as if continually transforming. The subject matter may refer to the vibrant suburban-urban life within her sphere, contemplative interior moments, or the dynamics of her personal family relationship patterns.
Flint welcomes commission enquiries - let her use her colorful style to paint portraits of you, your family, your pet, or a work inspired by a memory, a favorite photograph, a setting from your current family life.
Stacie’s paintings and portraits have been collected nationally and internationally. She has exhibited extensively throughout the Mid-Hudson Valley and in New York City, New Jersey, Florida and Montreal, Canada. Her commissioned public art is on permanent display at Ulster County Area Transit in Kingston, New York. Her work has been featured on numerous magazine covers including Chronogram, The Valley Table, The Ulster County Community Guide, HITS Program Guide, and The Van Wyck Gazette and has appeared in various issues of The New York Times, Hudson Valley Magazine, Poughkeepsie Journal, New Paltz Times and other publications. Flint illustrated “Ten Pigs Fiddling,” a children’s book authored by Ron Atlas (2005, Amberwood Press), and she created work for two music CD covers for the band Grenadilla.
A Long Island native, Stacie resides in New Paltz, New York, where she studied Fine Art at the State University of New York at New Paltz and SUNY Empire State.
