Audrey Fontaine has been a multi-media artist since she was eight years old, and in 1983 received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Studio Art from Southern Connecticut State University in New Haven, CT. In 1989 she was awarded a two-year Fellowship from Penland School of Crafts in Penland, North Carolina. This prestigious opportunity allowed her to study under dozens of internationally renowned fine craft instructors.
She has experimented with about 25 different media including various types of jewelry, gourds, clay, metalworking, wood, fiber, leather, polymer, precious metal clay, mixed-media sculpture and driftwood art. She has received multiple awards, been represented by galleries nationwide for over 35 years, exhibited in local and national shows, and has taught a variety of crafts to both adults and children. She relocated from Connecticut to California in 2003, and is finding much creative inspiration there. Being close to the coast has provided the inspiration for her Ocean Inspired Collection, Audrey’s most popular line.
