Makanowitzky's pastels have sold to buyers in Europe and across the U. S. Since moving to Maine from France in l992, she has had 11 solo shows and over 20 juried shows in New England, California, New York, and Washington D.C. She is a signature member of the Pastel Society of America.
Her aim is not to reproduce a scene, but to express the emotion it evokes. Her favorite subject is the sea, which she paints in California in winter and in Maine the rest of the year. In the words of one gallery director, "she is particularly noted for the originality and magnificent color of her seascapes ... which can be viewed on two levels, realistic and abstract, at the same time." In the words of another, "Her paintings float back and forth across the border of reality and unreality, always dominated by a strong rhythmic flow with translucent depths."
Makanowitzky is represented on both coasts: in California by Ventana in Big Sur and Homescapes-Carmel; in Maine by the Elan Gallery in Rockland, Ebb Tide in Kennebunkport, and The Stable Gallery in Damariscotta.
