About The Artist

Claudia Mengel has been studying, instructing, and making art for many years. Fourteen years ago, she left her corporate career as Vice President of Creative Services at J.P. Morgan Chase Manhattan Bank and began concentrating on her art full-time. An accomplished painter and printmaker whose work is in many private collections in the tri-state area, she exhibits at several galleries and is a member of Silvermine Artist Guild and a member of the Center for Contemporary Printmaking, where she served on the board.

The artist received her degree in printmaking from the Brainerd Art School at the State University of New York at Potsdam. She has continued her studies at the Art Students League in New York, the Silvermine Art Center, the Center for Contemporary Printmaking, and the Darien Art Center, as well as with private teachers. She has studied with Robert Reed, Professor of Art at Yale. She also studies and works with Hugh O’Donnell, Professor of Art at Boston University, Constance Kiermaier, a prominent New England artist, Master Printer Marina Anacona, and Master Printer Anthony Kirk, who has printed with major American artists including Helen Frankenthaler and Wolf Kahn.

Selected and attended residency at Vermont Studio Center in February 2018.

Born in New York City, Ms. Mengel now works and lives in Westport, Connecticut.

"My work comes from not looking, but experiencing the world around me, and then translating these visual and emotional perceptions. With every creation, there is a new discovery, a new problem, a new solution. 

Every time I approach the blank white space, I take a unique journey always unlike the last, and never like the next. It is what keeps me coming back."
