Jodi DeCrenza creates work that pulsates with the power of positivity. In her Hastings-on-Hudson, NY studio, she enthusiastically explores emotions that energize her creativity. She employs a kaleidoscope of radiant colors, inspired by the natural world. With a blend of spontaneous and intuitive brushstrokes, she creates pieces that live somewhere between impressionistic and abstract. She predominantly works with oil and acrylic pigments on stretched canvas. She looks at each piece as a visceral journey into soothing, enigmatic, and fierce representations of landscapes and nature.
DeCrenza’s intention is to create pieces that speak to the mind, body, and spirit. The artist is also a dedicated health and fitness professional, a passion and career that informs her artistic practice. Through her paintings, she aims to find the bountiful beauty in the everyday and share her optimistic attitude about life with others. DeCrenza has found great purpose through painting. As such, she has entitled her body of work “My Soul’s Purpose.”
DeCrenza exhibited at The Louvre (Paris, France), The Museum of Modern Art (Barcelona, Spain), The Museum of Science and Technology (Milan, Italy), Colorida Gallery (Lisbon, Portugal), Artio Gallery (Toronto, Canada), and was recently invited to show her paintings in Dubai and South Korea. She was named one of 60 Masters by ArtTour International Magazine in 2022 and her works have appeared in the magazine on several occasions. She was also given a Leonardo da Vinci award for 50 of the top Universal Artists of 2023 curated by Salvatore Russo.
