Cecily Citrino

As a Philadelphia native living in Denver, Colorado for over 21 years now, Cecily is a Master Stylist in hair, fine artist, and art educator. With a B.S. in Art Education from Temple University, her passion for not only teaching art, but also expanding her own voice, lead her to VSA Colorado/Access Gallery. 
During the course of her career as a commissioned artist, Cecily has created many paintings and drawings of beloved pets from photographs; dog portraits are her most common request. With an eye for detail and keen sense of color, her realistic images emote the sincere uniqueness and expression of each animal as an individual. 
 Working part-time in the salon and part-time on commissioned art, but no longer working in the public school system, the only piece that she felt was missing in her life was the ability to share her passion for making art with like-minded people. It’s through the time she spends with the young artists at VSA Colorado/Access Gallery that she has finally been able to fill that void. This experience has enriched her life in so many ways.
