Nell Stifel is a local artist who graduated from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts 1988, and has since been working in the movie business as a Scenic Charge in United Scenic Artists Local 829. She has worked on over 40 film and television productions, painting scenery for major motion pictures like Silver Linings Playbook, The Lovely Bones, The Royal Tenenbaums and Pollock.
“ I work closely with the Production Designer, organizing the materials, techniques, schedule and personnel to expedite the designer’s vision for the movie sets. No two jobs are the same; the work is challenging, never boring.”
Her paintings and drawings have also been exhibited in many group shows including the Painted Bride Art Center, Highwire Artists Gallery, Da Vinci Art Alliance, and Manayunk Art Center.
