BIOGRAPHY

Rachel Citrino was born in Philadelphia, PA in 1942.   She recently relocated her studio  to South Jersey where she resides.   She  has been a notably active visual artist and independent curator for over fifty years in the TriState Arts community and has exhibited in numerous  group and solo exhibitions  in the USA and abroad.

She attended classes at Fleisher Art Memorial for several years. After raising four daughters she returned to studio work at the Pennsylvania  Academy of the Fine Arts classes where she spent some summers plein aire painting with Jimmy Leuders.  She has won  awards and citations from the City of Philadelphia as well as  the City of Florence, Italy and has been awarded residencies in S. Stefano in Sessanio, Abruzzi; in Scarlino, Tuscany and the Vermont Studio School,USA. She was awarded the Lucy Glick Prize at the Fellowship PAFA 2020. Her work is represented in private and public collections internationally.

            Citrino’s work is recognized for  use of intense color and unrestrained energy of composition. Early in her journey she was greatly influenced by the works and pedagogy of Paul Klee and Cy Twombly,
