Irma Shapiro identifies herself as a colorist, using tone, tint, vividness, richness, (or lack of) to depict shape and form - sometimes exaggerating reality or embellishing the subject matter. Her work has a post-impressionistic flair, but it is pushing toward the boundaries of the imaginary. She is aware of the brilliance of color and tries to achieve an effect of the subject rather than a literal interpretation. Her favored media is acrylic on canvas, paper, or board.
She is a member of the following organizations:
