arts education in the United States. This is exemplified by her teaching
and writing. She was an original member of the Water Street Atelier and

the award winning Classical Atelier Program. Aristides is a regular
contributor to Artist Magazine and is currently writing two books for

Atelier. Aristides' work is imbued with confidence and bravura. An
innate drawing talent permeates her work. Her work invites the viewer to
share an inner world as she explores her identity through the roles of
artist, teacher, historian and mother. Aristides utilizes historical
references which entices the viewer's intellect. She employs a rich warm
palette, reminiscent of another age.
