About Me

My Practice

I document what I grow, cook and forage through mono printing, abstract painting and collage.  I work with acrylics,  plants, food, paper and found objects. I spent way too much money on paper and have piles of odd found objects in my studio. Sharing time and space with others to create art and food, particularly in community settings,  enables me to consider and experiment  with an ever expanding array of ideas, objects  and mediums.

Claire M Tallarico

I am a trained chef, urban gardener and visual artist passionate about exploring and documenting the intersection between creative practices, communities and food. I am  also a seasoned  freelance policy and communications advisor to non profits, primarily in health care.  When I am in my studio, I often think about how these various aspects of my life and work are interrelated as a force for good.

I am also the founder and co facilitator of Alchemy, an international two week artist led residency that takes place each summer in Ontario, Canada.  Alchemy explores the intersection between artistic and creative practices.  Visit make alchemy.com for more about this unique residency and how to apply.
