She began her studies in 1988 under Myron Barnstone in Design Systems and continued to study drawing and painting at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, followed by study at The Atelier, in Minneapolis, in the tradition of Richard Lack. This training was followed by two years of instruction at the National Academy in New York with Jacob Collins, while also receiving instruction from Carlos Madrid. Aristides spent a year working with a small group of students at Collins' studio prior to becoming a founding member of the Water Street Atelier, in Brooklyn. She has received both the Wilder Prize for Drawing and the Albert Hallgarten Traveling Scholarship while studying at the National Academy of Design. She is also a recipient of the Elizabeth Greenshields Grant. Her work can be seen on The Art Renewal Center's website under the living masters gallery and on her own website.
