Courtney Lampert

by Courtney Lampert

 

Courtney Lampert is from Houston Texas. She moved to New England in 2012 and received her MFA in Painting from UNH in 2014. She began to embroider as a result of being away from her studio. Embroidery allowed for exploration and experimentation in ways that were both challenging and freeing. Using her background in painting, she began making larger works and pushing the media both thematically and technically. Her work utilizes traditional stitches, historical imagery, and narrative to record events and people in her life.
