Colette's latest series of paintings draws inspiration from living in New York for many years. "I worked to capture the beautiful light and vivid colors found in the city," she says. Three figures stroll down an avenue, with the American flag placed in the background among the diverse architecture.

Colette Wirz Nauke gathers inspiration from her surroundings and memories and fuses them with her imagination. She has been greatly influenced by Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, especially techniques used by Monet, Cezanne and Bonnard. She tries to use similar approaches in her own work. Colette spends her summer traveling throughout the US and abroad in search of her next muse. When she's not painting, she enjoys visiting art museums and going to parks in search of cherry blossoms in bloom. She currently lives in New York.
