Although her travels, appreciation for the natural world and love of painting have shaped her vision as an artist, Christina Oddo will be the the first person to say that her art is heavily influenced by Chester County. Oddo's landscapes of this rich and expansive landscape capture fleeting moments of rich color and luminosity, affected by the transformation of light. Using earth tones and highlights of vivid color, she guides the viewer's eye toward an emotional response to each work of art.

Over the course of the next several pages, we invite you to enjoy Oddo's vivid exploration of mood and space...and home. We also invite you meet the artist at one of the several upcoming gallery shows Oddo will be having in the next few months:
