|Born and raised in Hudson, Mass., Visnoski said she became aware of her artistic abilities when she was about 5 years old. “I couldn't stop drawing on things,” she said. Throughout her academic years, her art teachers molded her abilities into what would be a lifelong pursuit and she was named “Most Artistic” among her high school class. She studied with Lawrence Cron, known for his watercolors and graphic design work, and attended Worcester Art Museum and Worcester State College, studying fine art, graphic design and photography.
In 2006 she became a Member of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals and was an Editors’ Choice winner for her photograph “Wetlands.” She also has participated in national juried art exhibitions and competitions and was a 2008 winner for her watercolor painting “Predators & Prey” in the international juried online art exhibition and e-zine presented by The Manhattan Arts International Web site titled “Celebrate the Healing Power of Art 2008.”
In 2009, her work was published in New Art Review Publications “Dimensions of Disclosure,” featuring the top new artistic talents of the year. Also last year, her photograph “Into the Light” was a finalist in the International Photography Juried Competition sponsored by Canon and Photographer’s Forum Magazine in the “Best of Photography 2009.”
Most recently, Visnoski received four awards for her watercolor painting “Mortality” in The American Art Awards (online) juried art competition.
She is included in the new book 'Self: Self-portraits from around the world' Compiled by Craig Kerrecoe. The book is a limited addition publication of 1000 copies. You can read more about this book at: http://www.beautifulcariadbooks.com/.
