Reisha Perlmutter @ReishaPerlmutter on FB

Reisha Perlmutter was born and raised in Naples, Fl. She relates her work directly to her experiences of light and nature from childhood, and her relationship growing up around the presence of water.

Since childhood, Perlmutter has found her internal language and understanding of the world through creating, and through art. Images of the natural world, painted themselves onto her psyche. Memories of the silver Gulf of Mexico gleaming after a summer downpour continue to speak to her work, especially in her newest series AQUA.

Perlmutter studied at Bates College in Maine to expand her greater thought process and language. However, after two years, she was ready to devote herself entirely to her art.
