Marcela Staudenmaier


As a visual artist, I work in a variety of media. My cut paper collages -particularly- allow me to combine my architectural background and my illustrator skills in a single medium. I call it “three dimensional cut paper collage”.  Through my work I intend to evoke a sense of wonder and playfulness.

I have been the recipient of the Tassy Walden Award, the Ann Barrow Illustrator’s Scholarship and the R. Michelson Galleries Emerging 
Artist Award. My work has also received accolades from 
the Danforth Museum of Art, 3x3 Magazine of Contemporary Illustration, the Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles, the New England Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and the Connecticut Humanities Center for the Book. I was a 2017 Artist-in-Residence at the Ely Center for Contemporary Art.

Recently, I have been recognized by the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development Office of the Arts with the Artist Fellowship Excellence Award in the discipines of Visual Arts, Illustration, Children’s Book Illustration, and Works on Paper.

I earned my Diploma in Architecture from the National University of Tucuman, Argentina, and my Certificate in Children’s Book Illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design CE.

I am a practicing architect and a CE Instructor at the Rhode Island School of Design.
