About the Artist

Cantelmi’s paintings both calm and mesmerize the senses. Her abstract landscapes combine a dreamy, tranquil palette with imaginative undulations and optimistic, lush brushwork.

About the Artist

Cantelmi’s paintings both calm and mesmerize the senses. Her abstract landscapes combine a dreamy, tranquil palette with imaginative undulations and optimistic, lush brushwork.

The canvases in this artist’s oeuvre are a panacea for endless cloudy days, bustling noisy streets, or the cold that just won’t go away. They’ll have you traveling to a place where all things work for good. Using mostly oils on large substrates—including textured canvas, slick sustainable woods, even Italian linen—she summons a most painterly effect.

Cantelmi began her visual career in the fashion industry, where she worked as a style editor, producing Page One feature stories. A former competitive middle-distance runner (she set several course records), she brings the same energy and endurance she applied as a runner to her process as a painter, creating canvases as large as 6 by 10 feet.

Achieving depth and light is paramount to this artist’s work, and she invites you to say, “I just want to dive right into that painting.”
