Born 1920 in former Czechoslovakia, Yolanda Fusco (born Yolanda Orminsky) moved with her family to New York City at the age of ten. Showing interest in art from an early age, Fusco took advantage of New York’s institutions and furthered her technical education at the Art Students League studying with Ernest Fiene, Harry Sternberg, and Vaclao Vytlacil, and later studied textile design at Pratt Institute. Fusco married a chemist and had two children but continued to pursue her passion for art via her job as a textile designer and through teaching art to adults at various art clubs. Falling in love with Monhegan Island after a short visit at the urging of her friends, Fusco proceeded to paint the islands scenery many times and has become known for her sparse abstract depictions of it. Her other subject include female nudes, interior painting and city scapes. Today Fusco’s art can be found in the Monhegan Museum of Art and History and Owen Art Gallery at Gould Academy as well as in a number of private collections.
