Artist Statement

I capture delight and cherish the journey when I stand in front of my canvas. Music is my muse and dance is my brushstroke. There is no hiding my joyful spirit - the art is my mirror. Intersecting brushstrokes and colors reflect my energy. Open to wonder, I allow my curiosity to take me on an adventure where I find freedom in the abstract and inspiration in the everyday. I respond to marks and composition until I see and feel the balance and beauty that captures this delight. My art is an invitation to move up close with curiosity and step back with wide eyes, exactly as I did. It is a gentle nudge, encouraging viewers to chase what lights them up and see the boundless delightful possibilities within themselves.

Artist Bio

Tricia Caracappa is an artist and designer who finds joy and journey in her abstract paintings. Growing up and currently living in Katonah, New York, she was introduced to the arts at a young age, exploring every medium available from painting to pottery, printmaking and dance. Tricia continued to study studio art focusing on figure drawing while she received a BS in Systems Science from Providence College. Tricia studied at the Art Students League of New York and received an AAS in Interior Design from Parsons School of Design while also building a twenty year career in global financial services. After retiring from Morgan Stanley, Tricia began her design business and reignited her passion for painting. Tricia’s practice often carries her across media and subjects where she finds groundedness in form and freedom in the abstract. Her work reveals her love of color, line and gesture. She believes that art is our daily reminder to choose joy and live in the present with ease and delight. In addition to Yellow Studio Gallery, her work has been exhibited in numerous group shows and events in the tri-state area and is in private collections. Tricia currently serves on the board of the Katonah Museum Artists’ Association. Tricia’s studio is tucked into the 19th century brick lined Yellow Monkey Village in Cross River, New York, right next to where she completed her Yellow Studio Artist Residency.
