Born in Paris, France, to a family of artists, Daisy de Puthod has painted since childhood. In 1975, after graduating from the Colorado Institute of Art, she became a successful commercial artist, also doing pastel portraits of children and pen & inks or watercolors of homes.
Drawing and painting from life in her sketchbooks during her early travels to France was a good foundation towards her current love of plein air painting in oils. Daisy finds painting outside invigorating and the best way to capture the true feeling of a place. Having participated in over 17 Plein Air events from coast to coast, the artist always finds it inspiring to discover new places and reconnect to other Plein Air painters.
Local Hudson River and farm scenes will be her focus in the Rhinebeck Art Gallery.
You can view her paintings of Arizona, California, Maine, Maryland and Vermont on her website. Daisy de Puthod is on the advisory board and a Signature member of the New York Plein Air Painters, also a Signature member of the American Impressionist Society.
Her work has found its way into numerous private and public collections, including the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum and the home of the former chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts.
