Whitney Works Art Studio
I was born and raised in Litchfield County in the tiny town of Warren, Connecticut. Much of my childhood was spent creating and imagining. In middle school, I began seriously pursuing my interest and developing my skills in art. In high school, I was awarded the Rhode Island School of Design Book Award as well as the Phidias Cup. In college, I studied Fine Arts and Education.
I currently reside in Western Massachusetts and have been a full-time elementary school teacher for the past seventeen years. When I’m not teaching, I am raising two young sons and creating art every moment I can.
ABOUT WHITNEY'S WORK:
I work primarily with acrylic paint, pen, pencil, pages from dictionaries, old text, and
things that others view as junk, trash, or worthless. MonStars, Paintings, Furniture...
My art has been a part of Celebrate West Hartford (CT), Hartford Hodge Podge (CT),
EnVision Fest (CT), Re:Create CT, Art on Groton Bank (CT), the Mattoon Street Art Festival (MA), Newport Folk Festival (RI), and several other pop-up, group, and solo art shows. My work is found at Auntie Cathie’s Kitchen in West Springfield (MA), Oh So Pretties in Wilbraham (MA), and The Silly Sprout in Litchfield (CT). I am an artist with 24 Peace (based out of Cobalt, CT).
Public art projects and exhibitions are delightful challenges for me. I’ve designed and created a terrier dog (West Springfield, MA), a Bearfest bear (Easthampton, MA), created an ArtPicnic picnic table for the Springfield (MA) Museums, two benches for Imagine Main Street (Manchester, CT) a runner for Runners Art Parade (Manchester, CT).
Regardless of the art form, my brave and bold use of color is easily visible.
small studio - big ideas - bold colors - endless dreaming
