Originally from New England, Cornelia Pratt relocated to Jacksonville, FL, about thirty years ago where the opalescent skies and watery expanses inspired her to take up painting. She began seriously experimenting with watercolor, pastel and collage, ultimately choosing to paint in oil.
Training in traditional oil painting techniques has led Cornelia Pratt to paint still lifes and landscapes in a realistic, yet painterly style. She has exhibited in various art associations in North Florida. In addition the Club Continental in Orange Park, FL has shown her work during the holiday season. Her landscapes depict North Florida nature and landmarks, while her still lifes bring out the beauty in common objects.
