Regardless of the art form, my brave and bold use of color is easily visible.
Whitney Works Art Studio
small studio - big ideas - bold colors - endless dreaming
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 over 15 years. When I’m not teaching, I am raising two 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,
reclaimed wood, and things that others view as junk, trash, or worthless.
Itty Bits Magnets, Tiny Houses, 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 online as well as at Auntie Cathie’s Kitchen in Agawam (MA), and 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). More public art projects are currently in the works!
