Colette Watts Quaglia's Profile

About

I love the process of rearranging. In the case of my art, this means taking bits and pieces of leftover fabric scraps, ripped papers, cardboard inserts, watercolor paper, and found ephemera and moving them around until I can move them around no more. Sometimes this takes a few minutes. Other times it takes a few weeks. And then I draw, paint, and/or sew into this ordered chaos. My process is obsessive, intense, sometimes insane and always a complete blast. I love what I do.

Interested in larger works? Have an idea that you would love to see turned into an original work? Would like to give a special gift and looking for a specific subject or color? I always welcome custom projects and special requests. Convo me and we can work out the details!
