Alfonsina Betancourt

Alfonsina is a realist painter based in Norwalk CT.  Originally from Venezuela, she combines her passion for representational art with her careful contemplation of the world around her. From figures and portraits to landscapes, her work shows the relationship between the artist and her subjects, the pass of time and the interpretation of reality.  Alfonsina's work is not merely a rendition of what she sees but also of what she feels. Her work is highly chromatic and introspective.

After earning a Bachelor's degree in Visual Arts from Pine Manor College, she has taken classes and workshops with several artists including Jeremy Lipking, Steven Assael and Dean Fisher. Her works are currently  in private collection in several countries.

Alfonsina is in the board of directors of the New Haven Paint and Clay Club.
