Medy Bozkurtian was born in Bulgaria where she found an aptitude for creativity. Aside from her love for painting, she is a classically trained pianist and was taught piano pedagogy at the Julliard School of Music. Additionally, she studied oil painting at the Art Students’ League. Medy uses her musical influences, as well as her world travels and her love of people, to capture the beauty in her subjects. The aesthetics of her paintings are very calm and uplifting because of that fact. She has been show in juried exhibits at the Salmagundi Club with the American Artists Professional League and the National Art Gallery. Bozkurtian has also been represented in several solo shows at the Community Theater of Morristown, Morristown Memorial and Overlook Hospitals, the Frelinghuysen Arboretum, and the Morristown Courthouse. She is also a signature member of the Garden State Watercolor Society and Essex Water Color Club, as well as the Rudgewood Art Institute and Drew Art Club. Medy currently resides in East Hanover, New Jersey with her husband.
