Watercolor artist Essie Freilach has been interested in art and loved colors since an early age. Working and raising two sons did not leave her much time to pursue her ambition to paint. Eight years ago Essie joined a weekly painting group, the New Village Watercolor Group, and she has been painting ever since. Inspired by nature, Essie prefers to paint landscapes and seascapes. She has studied with Long Island watercolor artists Elizabeth Greif, Mary Waka and the late Anne Scully. Essie’s paintings have been exhibited at art galleries and libraries across Long Island.
