COCO  SWEEZY


In a Nutshell

I got my degree in Art History in Mexico City, where I was born. I have taken numerous art classes and workshops in the US where I have lived for many decades.  I have learned and continue doing so from many excellent artists.  

The inspiration for my paintings comes from my  native Mexico: its art and its crafts, from my travels, my surroundings and my memories .





My  paintings
I  have tried several media throughout  the years. I love pastels, I like their immediacy and color range. Acrylics for their brilliance and versatility, watercolors and inks to play .... I experiment with different papers, boards and canvases.

I do my own framing using new or recycled frames to keep the cost down. In some cases my husband John  makes beautiful custom made frames for my paintings.







My prints
I do my own archival ink jet prints (GiclĂ©es). I use the best artist paper to make my reproductions really look like originals.


My studio

I have a studio and a small gallery to exhibit my paintings in Vicksburg, Michigan.  I take pictures but I prefer to paint  in my studio where I welcome visitors by appointment.
