There is life after Wall Street. Jill S. Krutick, a top ranked investment analyst and media executive, has transitioned to a world that has no boundaries – Art.
Ms. Krutick, 50, a Roslyn, New York native has reinvented herself, and has become a rising star in the world of art.
Having built her first career as an investment analyst studying and advising entertainment and leisure companies, while raising two children, Ms. Krutick is now focused on creating value on the canvas.
Influenced by a love of art masters both old and new, - Van Gogh, Monet and Gerhardt Richter, Ms. Krutick has developed an oeuvre of work that is both abstract and imaginative.
“An exploration of my works should reveal as much about a viewer’s emotional state as it does mine. The oil painting may be abstract or it may be representational, but what makes the painting come to life is the interplay of light, colors, textures, shapes and spaces,” Ms. Krutick suggests.
An exhibition of Ms. Krutick’s work will be available at her studio located at 32 Tisdale Road, Scarsdale, New York during the weekend of May 10th. Dozens of art works will be on view.
Since turning her full time attention to art, Ms. Krutick has had numerous solo and group art shows.
Recently, Ms. Krutick was selected to exhibit her works at a gallery housed in the SOHO-based offices of Splashlight, a leading producer of fashion photography and e-commerce content. Among Splashlight’s top clients are ALDO, Ann Taylor + LOFT, Bloomingdales, Jockey, Macy's and Nordstrom.
Splashlight’s North Hall Gallery has presented many award winning artists and photographers, such as Peter Ruprecht, Storm Thorgerson and Eric Demarchelier. Ms. Krutick was nominated by the management team to have a solo exhibition.
She was chosen by Artsicle, a leading online art website that encourages emerging artists, as a “Trending Artist” -- based on the number of artworks users have “favorited”. In addition, she was selected by the offices of Partner’s International and A.T. Kearney -- two well-recognized consulting firms -- to have several of her works in residence. Prior to becoming a professional artist, Ms. Krutick spent more than 20 years in the investment and corporate world, primarily as an investment analyst focusing on entertainment and leisure companies.
During that period, Ms. Krutick’s was a ranked analyst for seven years in the prestigious Institutional Investor’s All Star Analyst Team as well as being ranked the top entertainment analyst by Fortune magazine.
Ms. Krutick was a senior corporate development executive at Warner Music during its public company cycle. Currently, she sits on the boards of The Art Students League of New York and the New York Chapter of the National Academy of Recorded Arts & Sciences. Ms. Krutick earned her B.S. degree at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School and her M.B.A. degree at New York University’s Stern School of Business.
Ms. Krutick’s crystal ball is much clearer these days – with no constraints but her imagination.
