Welcome to my Website! 

It has been a great year for me….my paintings have been selling and I have had the privilege of visiting with some of my favorite Collectors. THANK YOU to everyone who appreciates and encourages us artists in our endeavor to communicate to the world in a visual way!

 Working with Sheldon Fine Arts has been a lot of fun and several times they have invited me to come demonstrate….I love that!!!  I have also had the opportunity to do a couple of Commissions for patrons which is always fun…One of them was a beach scene and one a landscape….

 This Summer I visited their Gallery in Newport RI and Saratoga, NY and I am excited to be included in their Roster of Artists.  See the Gallery Page for Contact Information.

 I also was asked to do a Rose Painting Demonstration for the Rose Convention held here in Palm Beach County at the Hilton this past Fall…here’s a picture of me and Debbie Coolidge, one of the owners of Cool Roses who was hosting the Convention..

 I am looking forward to working on a series of landscapes in the coming months and will try to keep my website updated with new work.

 And don’t forget to also take a look at the  “Notecards” Page….!

 I would love to hear from you and any comments you may have.  Again, many thanks for visiting.

Hope Reis is a contemporary artist, originally from Greenwich, Connecticut.  She received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Interior Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, but since 2000 has spent her time learning about art.

Hope seeks to combine realism and impressionism in her paintings.  Painting from life, or on location is what really inspires her, and heightens the emotional charge and depth in her work. Whether she arranges a live floral set up in her studio, or is painting en plein air, Hope wants to capture the freshness of the flowers, or the effect of the light on the landscape.  She works in either watercolor or oils, depending upon the effect she is trying to achieve.

Inspired by the richness of the work of the Old Masters, Hope’s work has a timeless quality to it enhanced by her intuitive sense about contemporary taste and color. 

Painting from life: “I feel the energy and passion that comes from painting from life, whether flowers in the Studio or painting in the landscape.  This element is one of the things that really excites me. It’s what I want the viewer to feel also, says the artist.  I want my work to reflect the appreciation I feel for the glorious beauty God has given all to enjoy.”

One of her florals is featured in a book from International Artist Publishing entitled, “How Did You Paint That?  100 Ways to Paint  Still Life & Florals”.

Her work is represented by Sheldon Fine Art in both Naples, FL & Newport, RI.  Her paintings are found in both private and corporate collections worldwide.
