About Stacey Torres

Stacey Torres Born in Jamaica, NY in 1953, Stacey Torres is an African American Folk and Fauvist artist and writer living in New Castle, IN. Inspired by her Caribbean heritage, her primary focus are the female figure and lush garden landscapes, painted with an abundance of brilliant color with watercolor, oil pastels and acrylics paints. “I had my first exhibit in 1974 in the lobby of Chelsea Bank on 23rd Street in New York. It was a series of pen and ink drawings of owls and waterfowl that I had been working on since high school. I knew nothing about presentation, framing, matting, etc. Thinking back on it, it was pretty dreadful and funny. But I did sell all of my pieces. Art was in my blood, but I didn’t know how to direct it at that stage in my life, so I just put my brush down ~ for 45 years. But in 2014, my mother, who had been suffering from Alzheimer’s, began to show signs of nearing the end of her journey. Devastated, I turned once more to my art as therapy. Unsure of how I would survive after my mom’s passing, I tried not to panic. Working outside of the home had become difficult for me due to health and emotional issues. And I put my faith in God and just went on with it. Shortly after she died, I was approached by ABC Studios about acquiring some of my artwork for two episodes of the TV show, “Criminal Minds” (the show aired on CBS, but I guess it was a joint production with ABC). After that, my much-awaited art career began to bloom. In 2019, I also contracted with the Starz network for the use of some of my artwork for a new TV series, “Hightown.” I’ve never watched it, so I have no idea if my artwork made it onto the show or the cutting floor. While I’ve had a few solo exhibits and participated in several group art shows over the last six years, my primary art venture has been online. I create based on my history, culture, and my growth as a woman of color in this new world we are now in. So, when you ask me who and where is my market, I will tell you it’s global, as some of my art has been curated in private collections located in several countries. It took me 45 years to realize my dream of being an artist. At 67, I am comfortable where I am. COVID-19 has changed how everything works these days. There are no in-person art exhibitions, etc. Rarely can/will I meet with any art collectors in person. So, I do work by commission, i.e., family portraits, cards, memorial paintings, pet portraits, fantasy gardens, etc. It’s a new normal, and being socially introverted, I’m okay with the quietness and solitude that goes with a quarantine lockdown. However, I travel now – and this allows me to paint things that speak to me in my own time. New Castle adopted me in 1967 when I moved to Henry County, Indiana from New York with my mother after her second marriage. My home is here, and I guess you can call it my studio/gallery. But I also spend time with my partner at his home, where he has also provided me with space to create there as well. It had been my hope to be in an artist residency last summer or possibly this year. But as I grow older and social distancing has changed everything, it’s doubtful. So, for now, I’ll make the very best of everything and pray my art will sustain me into the future. Art, after all, is forever. Stacey Torres
