About Nita Leger Casey

From plein air painter on the rugged coast of Maine to a studio Artist and teacher for the rest of the year, Nita is very prolific with her art. From her delicate and intricate still life, to her commissions of painting Victorian homes, or her lovely creations of greeting cards, art is on her mind from morning to night. Her love for beautiful things as antique lace and tea cups to lovely flower gardens. All of these can be seen in her work.

Born and raised in France, and having attended the famed Ecole des Beaux Arts at a young age and on to the Ecole de Dessin in Paris. In 1964, Nita married a young American soldier and for the following twenty years went on to travel all over the world with him and their three children. While living in Italy she felt more inspired with all the beauty around her and continued painting primarily in oils. Later, in Germany, she began teaching art in the American community.

Nita is a very motivated person and considers herself very fortunate to live in a beautiful New England town. 'The beauty is all around me, from mountains to the seashore and a little bit of Old World feeling'. She gets her ideas while driving the back roads where she discovers countless scenes that intrigue her.
Nita is now working on her French landscape collection ,which are painted on location in small villages in the Sologne region where her Mom resides. Before she decides on a scene, she walks the paths many times over at different times of day to capture the right atmospheric feeling and has encountered the locals and exchanged the greetings of the day. Nita makes a twice a year visit, Fall and Spring, to the Loire valley where she was raised and the Sologne region where her mom lives. She hopes to capture the beautiful landscapes of that region where many famous impressionist have previously painted.
Nita also is part of the Daily Painters and has blog where you can see a new painting daily.
