About Linda Colletta
After 15 years as a scenic painter in the music television industry, Linda turned her focus to creating accessible art that adds a touch of beauty and happiness to any home. She defines her style as an abstract expressionist and works in several different medias – acrylics, oils and pastels. She explains her work is a series of “drips, washes, scribbles, and other happy accidents that evoke a feeling of freedom and unapologetic happiness.” Linda studied at Parsons School of Design in New York City and now works in her studio in the AmFab Building in Bridgeport CT. Her work can be seen all over the country and abroad.
About Julia Contacessi
Julia Contacessi defines herself as a contemporary abstract artist and explains her process as “a combination of conscious and subconscious exploration.” With a focus on color, texture and composition, Julia strives to deliver an atmospheric, feel-good effect in every one of her pieces. She studied Fine Art at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn and now works out of her home studio in Norwalk CT. She creates art for clients throughout the US and internationally.
