Artist Statement: My art takes inspiration from my great aunts who were first-generation Italian-Americans whose creative spirit could be seen in the beautiful garments they created using salvaged materials from their life’s work as seamstresses and tailors in New York City’s burgeoning garment district. Like them, I take pride in creating work with my hands. Although I have explored many mediums such as printmaking, acrylic, oil and reverse glass painting, it is my cut-paper collage portraiture I now enjoy and create for clients. This collage technique, which I developed, brings joy and depth to my work along with a strong color palette expressing the spontaneity and vibrancy of the human spirit.
