Art Brokerage: Sequoia C. Versillee American Artist: Versillee's is a realist painter whose contemporary representational works straddle the boundary between magical and romantic realism. Storytelling, symbolism and myth play important roles in her paintings and her goal as a artist is not to doggedly duplicate realistic depictions of subjects, but to capture the essence of a subject through the careful use of tone, texture, composition and light. The quality of her oil paintings is top shelf and the careful detail she places in her works isn't adequately captured by online pictures. Versillee has collectors of her works throughout the United States and abroad. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Art from the Cleveland Institute of art in 1999 and a Master’s in Library and Information Science from Kent State University in 2005.
