Artist Alicia Chimento
Born in Hoboken in 1954 and raised in northern New Jersey, Alicia’s fascination with color began in 1976 as a Contemporary Arts major at Ramapo College of New Jersey, with a focus on drawing, painting and design. Following college and while working in New York design showrooms as an assistant buyer, she decided to pursue the concentration of fabric design and enrolled in evening classes at Parsons. During study there, and later as a freelance textile designer, her love of color, texture and shape were translated into beautiful prints for a Three Worlds Design, a New York Home Furnishings Design Studio.
In 2005, the artist began to paint full time. Since then her work has been exhibited in regional, national and museum juried shows and galleries in New England, New Jersey and New York, and are in private collections in CA, MA, NY & NJ. Alicia resides in NJ and paints from her studios there, and on Cape Cod, MA, overlooking the bay.
