Colette Bresilla

Still-life painting by Colette BresillaColette 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.Still-life by Colette Bresilla

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.
