Carolyn Sheedy-Mazzucca graduated from SUNY the College at New Paltz, with a Bachelor of Fine Art degree - Printmaking in 1987. After undergraduate school, Carolyn lived in New York City and was employed as a fine art papermaker at DieuDonné Papermill. Her experience there exposed her to commissioned projects by artists who worked with paper as a medium.
In the early 1990s, she worked at the renowned Tyler Graphics Ltd., in Mount Kisco, NY. She has taught workshops in paper arts at Rhode Island School of Design, Providence, RI, Salve Regina University, Newport, RI, Bucknell University, Lewisburg, PA, New York College of Ceramics, School of Art and Design, at Alfred University, Alfred, NY, Vancouver Public Library, Vancouver, British Columbia, Oregon College of Arts and Crafts, Portland, OR and University of Kansas design department as a lecturer in color theory.
Carolyn's work involves the influence of urban decay through the passage of time using papermaking and pigment. "I look for the non-identified as a starting point and try to give contemplation to these transient moments in time."
Her work has been featured in multiple publications as well as private and corporate collections.
Carolyn resides in Portland, Oregon.
