Stacie Flint’s vibrant, figurative oil and acrylic paintings combine inventive color, painterly brushwork, and playful, animated energy to create her personal world of people, pets, and cherished objects set in lively, patterned interiors. Interested in personality and the dynamic of relationship, her art seeks emotional authenticity through use of rich, accessible imagery and fluid movement.
Stacie embraces Expressionism’s sense of freedom, interprets the brilliant color of the Fauves, and combines Pop with a personal twist. Influences include Vincent Van Gogh, Ludwig Kirchner, Pierre Bonnard, Henri Matisse, David Hockney, Alice Neel, and Keith Haring.
Stacie’s vision consistently offers viewers fun surprises through imaginative representational form and unexpected color. The energetic mood may be high or calm but is always in motion, as if continually transforming. The subject matter may refer to the vibrant suburban-urban life within her sphere, contemplative interior moments, or the dynamics of her personal family relationships.
Part of a family of artists, Stacie’s grandfather was an illustrator and art director, her mother-in-law was a German Expressionist painter, and her brother and both her sons are musicians.
She also uses her colorful style to paint portraits of her clients and their family life.
Stacie’s paintings and portraits are owned nationally and internationally. She has exhibited extensively throughout the Mid-Hudson Valley and in New York City, and in New Jersey, Florida and Montreal, Canada. Her commissioned public art is on permanent display at Ulster County Area Transit in Kingston, New York. Magazine covers include Chronogram, The Valley Table, The Ulster County Community Guide, HITS Program Guide, and The Van Wyck Gazette. She has illustrated a children's book, "Ten Pigs Fiddling", and created two music cd covers for the band Grenadilla. Her work has appeared in The New York Times, Hudson Valley Magazine, Poughkeepsie Journal, New Paltz Times and more.
Born on Long Island and residing in New Paltz, New York, Stacie studied Fine Art at the State University of New York at New Paltz, and SUNY Empire State.
