My name is Kim Martillotta- Muscarella. For the purposes of my art work I go by Martillotta. I am a 54 year old artist , and I live in Albion New York, just ten miles from the Lake Ontario Shore. I grew up on the Great Lakes Plain and have lived here for all of my life. When I was growing up, I had a friend who lived right on the lake, and I feel it has been one of the greatest influences of my life. I was married, had 3 kids, two girls and a boy, and was divorced. I then worked full time and put myself through college as a single mom. I received my BS degree in Studio Art at SUNY Brockport in 1993. I remarried in 2002 and my husband has made it possible to pursue my artwork full time. I work in several medium, and I classify my work under surrealistic Assemblage Art. I have recently sold two bodies of work to the Elizabeth Collection at Artisan Works in Rochester NY. I sold 52 Sculptures, 66 collages, and several shadow boxes. Recently I have taken painting classes and am beginning to embark on a painting career.
