Why painting?  As Joan Mitchell said - "It’s wonderful... like riding a bike with no hands." 


Eugenie Diserio is a life-long painter and visual artist. Her work is in juried shows, permanent exhibits and private collections.

She studied at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, earned a BFA from Tyler School of Art, Temple University and an MFA in Fine Arts from Columbia University.

As a graduate student, she designed the catalog "Rooms" for the inaugural show of what would become MoMA PS1 in Long Island City, New York.

After experimenting with conceptual and performance art, she formed the seminal 80's art rock bands, Model Citizens, The Dance and Chandra, whose music continues to be licensed and sampled in films and recordings today.
