A retired commercial art and graphic arts teacher, Ms. Giaquinto graduated from CCNY with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education. She is an accomplished artist, known for her colorful, fresh, spontaneous watercolors. Many of her paintings are done on location on the East End of Long Island and along the New England coast. She has won many significant awards, including: An Award of Merit from Henry Geldzahler, Curator for exhibits at the Museum of Modern Art, the prestigious Anna Hyatt Huntington Award from the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club, along with many other notable awards.

Ms. Giaquinto remarks, “Be who you are as an artist. I prefer not to duplicate what is seen in a situation, but rather to use my ability in a creative approach while retaining the character of the subject. Art is everywhere. You have to seize the opportunity to make it happen on paper or canvas. A famous artist known for his watercolors once said that you need to be passionate about your art and make a painting, not a pretty picture.”
