“A bit of a star-gazer” is how Allison Lefcort describes herself. Painting since early childhood, Lefcort has never lost sight of the stars. From her first exhibition in New York City, at the age of seventeen, to her most recent tour of Japan, Lefcort’s works have been displayed in some of the most prestigious museums and fine art galleries in the world.
In 1996 Lefcort was commissioned to create the portrait of the First Lady, Hillary Rodham Clinton. Senator Clinton was presented this portrait during the Women’s Leadership Forum of the Democratic National Committee.
Lefcort has painted recipients of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (The Grammy’s) Humanitarian Award including Sting, Phil Collins, Tony Bennett, Quincy Jones, Natalie Cole, Luciano Pavarotti, Gloria Estefan, Bonnie Raitt, David Crosby, and Stevie Wonder. These portraits currently hang in the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences offices in Los Angeles.
Lefcort’s paintings are part of the permanent collections of The Walt Disney Company, Universal Studios Orlando, Warner Brothers Studios, Viacom’s MTV & VH1, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, Ellen DeGeneres, Barbra Streisand, Liza Minnelli, Her Royal Highness Queen Noor of Jordan, Luciano Pavarotti, Deborah Gibson, Dionne Warwick, Tears for Fears, and The Indigo Girls.
