Loretta Puncer is a painter. Her first love is still life and landscape painting. The inspiration for her still life paintings come from objects she encounters in everyday life. Her landscapes are painted on location in places where the patterns of light and shadow capture her interest. She also creates contemporary abstract paintings including custom pieces for interior designers. Her interest in photography comes from growing up in a household where photographs were a part of everyday life as her Father was a professional photographer. Her photographs are taken when she travels to record images that inspire her paintings. Her work can be seen at Gallery 510 Fine Art, which she owns with her sister, Rosemary Baumann.

He firmly believes that everyone should own original artwork. “Don’t be intimidated by art,” he says. “Most people have a very real sense of what they like, and they should go with that.” Raised in New York City, Bill graduated from St. John’s University in Queens, and then the University of Dayton School of Law. While at UD, he net a young artist, Loretta. The rest, as they say, “is history.”
