Amanda Albanese

is an artist who speaks of potentiality, and sees art-making as a place of exploratory play. She finds all artwork, regardless of description to be abstract; stating β€œIt proposes what one wishes to see, yet only can be, through the process of it's own making.”   After graduating with a BFA, Painting, and BA, Psychology from Flagler College in 2005 Albanese moved to Brooklyn, New York, where she received an MFA in Painting from Pratt Institute in 2009. In 2010, Albanese relocated back to Providence and felll in love with art education.  It was during a college recruitiment visit from Maine College of Art  to the private high school were Albanese was teaching that a realization occured. Maine College of Art's teaching program could propell her love of art and teaching forward. Completely inspired Albanese moved to Portland, ME where she is currently completeling her Master of Arts in Teaching Degree.
