About Geninne Zlatkis
Geninne is an artist who was born in New York, but spent most of her life in various South American countries. She studied architecture in Chile and graphic arts in Mexico. She now makes her home with her husband Manolo, their two sons and a really cute red heeler named Zorro in the high desert near Santa Fe, New Mexico.
She works in a variety of media including, watercolor, ink, graphite and often includes elements of collage in her pieces. She sews, embroiders, loves to hand carve rubber stamps, makes ceramics and sells prints of her watercolors at her online Etsy Shop geninne.etsy.com.
Her inspiration comes primarily from nature, it is the driving force of her work. She never took a watercolor class which helped her develop her own style of painting.
Although Geninne keeps a number of vintage bird books and field guides on hand for easy reference and also carefully observes these feathered creatures in nature, she rarely depicts identifiable species. Instead she prefers to use her imagination and experiment with a variety of colors when depicting their plumage, thus lending each of these charming birds a distinct and unique personality.
