Colette Bresilla’s mother was a seamstress, and as a young girl, Colette stole sewing scraps from her mother’s work and hid away to create appliqués. This activity began her life-long affair with art. She moved to the United States many years ago as a young child.
She has kindly donated two still-life pieces to the IJDH auction. All proceeds from the sale of these paintings will go to IJDH. Still-life is a style of work she has always admired. She says, that “still-life, for me, is kind of like a therapy.” Most of her work focuses on feminine imagery and stereotypes. She likes her work to add voices for those who do not have a voice.
