Greta Corens broadened her artistic perspective at the Antwerp Art Academy in Belgium after a career as a sought after fashion designer in New York City. A beloved teacher guided her towards painting still lives in oils and watercolor. This led her to recognize the nurturing and elevating influence of baroque Dutch Golden Age Flower paintings during her boarding school years, and an intimate discovery of the effects of flowers on her psyche unraveled in her paintings. Returning to the US, several prestigious galleries in New York and Connecticut showcased and awarded recognition to some of her Watercolor Flowers that announce her breakthrough as a realistic watercolor painter. · Northern Westchester Center for the Arts NY · The Jewish Community Center of Mid-Westchester NY · The Putnam Arts Council NY · The Westchester Arts Council NY · The Geary Gallery CT juried contest .
