Tisha Balesi Wood

Born in the Mediterranean city of Nice, France, Tisha received her formal art education at the Beaux Arts School and studied for several years with renowned Vermont artist Lillian Kennedy.

Her formative years were nurtured in traditional European gatherings known as Salons where her family and friends included artists, writers and educators. Raised traveling between the United States and France, she enjoyed a dual and bilingual culture basking in the saturation of Mediterranean colors and the beauty of the North American landscape.

She paints with oils, acrylics and watercolors, displaying a strong palette knife stroke in oil and acrylic as well as a delicate brush when painting plien air with watercolors.
