Barbara Scavotto-Earley

Barbara Scavotto-Earley

Barbara Scavotto-Earley is a visual artist who works in clay and steel sculpture and occasionally, mixed media assemblage.  In 1950 she was born in Springfield, MA into the loving Italian family of Louis and Carmelina Scavotto and their all-embracing family trees. She was raised in the historic mill town of Thompsonville in northern CT, home of the former Bigelow-Sanford Carpet Mills. Her earliest memories consist of making art, inventing games, gathering with family and friends for parties and celebrations and yearning to learn and discover. Scavotto is the middle child of three and today maintains a close sisterhood with her siblings, Joanne Marie and Janet and their families.  She considers her twins, Ryan and Angela to be her greatest masterpieces. Scavotto lives and works in a quiet peaceful setting in Enfield, CT with her best friend and devoted husband Richard, her cat Malika and an assortment of outdoor feathered and four-legged friends.
