Heath Village Resident Displays Her stunning Paintings
[drops]Heath Village is very excited to introduce its new Artist-in-Residence Connie Halliwell.
Formerly of Netcong, Halliwell, along with her husband Tom, is a new resident at Heath Village. She has been painting for her entire life and is enormously talented. She attended Tufts University and graduated with a degree in Fine Arts. Following college and while pursuing her art on the side, Halliwell taught sixth grade social studies, mostly, for 25 years in Long Valley. Her favorite medium is watercolors but she will also occasionally paint in acrylics. She has been active in several art organizations, especially the Art Association in Roxbury, where she served in many capacities, including president. Halliwell has participated in numerous art shows and feels fortunate to have won some awards for her work.
In her painting, she likes to capture patterns of light and shadow and she often seems to include buildings or parts of them in her work. Halliwell most often paints landscapes, but occasionally might try a coastal scene, a floral, a city-scape, a still life, or even something more abstract.
The Halliwells may be new residents but they have been associated with Heath Village since 1991, when Tom’s mother and later, Connie’s parents, became residents. Connie led a watercolor workshop at Heath Village from 1999 through 2007. This is Halliwell’s third exhibit at Heath Village since 2003.
