I am currently living on the indigenous lands of the Mohican, Paugussett, Wappinger people in a place called Naugatuck, Connecticut. I graduated from Montserrat College of Art in 2003 and I have attended artists’ workshops in mixed media, painting, drawing, and printmaking throughout the US and Europe. I traveled for a while in the United States, Asia, and Europe and living in Colorado, Montana, and Nevada— locations that fueled my passion for nature and the outdoors— before returning to the East Coast to be closer to my family in 2015. I have been in my home state of CT ever since.
I once read a quote, I am not sure who said it, “The future of the world depends on creativity.” It has stuck with me. I think the arts are incredibly important to foster, within my community and beyond. I try to live my life with that in mind. I think all artists should be encouraged.
I create a lot using paint, collage and mixed media. I love gathering folks for workshops and painting events. As of right now, April 2020 that has been put on hold. So you can find me on FB and IG @rebeccamaloneyart. I am figuring it out with hope and joy.
