Nadia Mahfuz

Nadia Mahfuz received her classical instruction from R.H. Ives Gammell student Paul Ingbretson. The training followed the atelier system of the 19th century France.  As it did historically, a student was trained in still life , portrait, figure and plein-air painting.  She was also fortunate to study privately with contemporary New york painter Carol Bolsey for four years. Nadia Mahfuz believes the combination of her trainings has contributed to her artistic process and the painter she is today.

For three decades of painting and teaching she still considers herself a student of the visual world. Every time Nadia picks-up a brush she discover’s something new about light, form or composition. For her, painting has been a never ending passion and a gift.
