Rochelle (Ro) Fainstein is a self-taught, intuitive artist who has lived and created in NYC, TX, and now in Wilmington, NC. She travels often for inspiration.

Ro picked painting back up as an adult as a form of therapy to work through trauma. Today, her works span different media and include the celebration of quirky, extreme and joyful memories, as well as moments that are more trying, and works rooted in the occult and horror.

She has exhibited and sold works in Brooklyn, Austin, Wimberley and San Marcos, Pittsburgh, Wilmington and Charlotte.

Currently exhibiting at: Gallery Citrine in Wilmington, NC. Upcoming shows at Flytrap and ACES Gallery in Wilmington, NC and Van Der Plas Gallery in NYC's Lower East Side.

Banditka, for which her site and online presence is named, is a nickname her parents gave Ro growing up – a variation of bandit -- for her playful and lawless spirit that comes through in her works and personality.
