Biography from a third party submitted on 10/24/2007:
Lucelle Raad was born and educated in England, and moved to South Africa in her early twenties.  There, she studied the art of figurative painting, mostly of the Bantu men and women, whom she saw every day.

On close inspection of shadows, Raad found that there was a great variety of different colors, with blue as the predominant color.  Her early influences were of the Barbizon school and also of Sorola

During the political unrest in South Africa, she and her husband took their two children and moved to Long Island, eventually settling in Sarasota, Florida, where she presently resides and works in her studio.

Once asked why she paints only children, she replied, " I find unending satisfaction in combining my artistic interest in the figure with my emotional interest in children.  There is more expression in an offhand gesture by a small child than in all the posturings of our adult world."

Life, under Raad’s brush, is intended to be portrayed in all it’s innocence and freshness.

In her work, we find a blend of impressionism and traditionalism with a contemporary feel.  Her palette is bright and active, so that colors seem to change as one views the painting.  Her bold brush strokes possess a sketch-like quality.  Her style of realism shares the qualities of Bonnard and Vuillard…one of intimism, bringing the viewer into an intimate relationship with the figures.

Lucelle Raad's goal is to imbue her paintings with a feeling for humanity.
