Christie Velesig

As an award winning professional artist, Christie Cardillo Velesig has lived and painted on Cape Cod for over 35 years.  Having a love of boats since childhood in Rhode Island, it is no wonder she specializes in marine paintings.  She is a member of The American Society of Marine Artists and has had numerous Museum and Gallery solo exhibitions and has consistently won awards in juried exhibitions.  Christie is recognized for her unique ability to combine both contemporary and classical styles with her use of color and subject matter.  Her concentration on color theory allows her to master a wonderful sense of light and distance in her paintings. 

Christie is past president of the Cape Cod Art Association and co-founder of “21 in Truro” – a group of professional woman artists.  Her work is in private and corporate collections throughout the United States, Canada, Ireland, England, and Australia.  Versatile in both oil and watercolor, Christie has taught studio as well as plein-air workshops at Cape Cod Community College, The Cahoon Museum of American Art, The Falmouth Artists Guild, The Cape Cod Art Association, The Creative Arts Center in Chatham, and The Cape Cod Guild of Fine Art.
