BIOGRAPHY - Lily Azerad-Goldman

Lily enjoys painting nature, human figures, landscapes, market places, 18th century peasants, romantic destinations, etc. Her style can be described as figurative and impressionistic. A recent publication (Canadian Jewish News) has described Lily as follows:
“Just give Lily Azérad-Goldman a bottle of water and a glass, and she’ll soon have her paper filled with summer blooms, lakeside scenes and open markets. The water isn’t for drinking but to slake her creative thirst in the production of watercolors, one of the most difficult of art media and the most delicately beautiful.” She also paints in Acrylics and Oils. Her specialty are landscapes, portraits and Jazz scenes in Montreal.
Her works have been exhibited in Montreal, California, Vermont and Florida. The Art Fair in Bethel, Maine (July 1st, 2006) has chosen one of her paintings of a covered bridge as their poster picture.
