About Cleo Manuel Krueger

Cleo Manuel Krueger studied art and biology at Cornell University, and earned her Master's degree in Medical Art from the Medical College of Georgia. After a career producing anatomical and surgical illustrations, Cleo returned to her true passion, fine art.

Cleo is a classically trained artist who attends figure drawing sessions with a live model and art critiques. She creates sensitively nuanced drawings and paintings of people, still-lives and landscapes. Her art strives to discover and celebrate the subtle shifts of color, light and human emotions that is often overlooked in our busy lives.

Raised in New Jersey, Cleo currently resides near Chicago.
