Stephen and Sabina Fascione Alcorn
While born in the U.S., Stephen Alcorn spent his formative years in Florence, Italy. It was there that he attended the Istituto Statale dArte, an experience that left an indelible impression upon him, infusing his work with a passion for bold technical experimentation in a wide range of mediums. It was there that he also met his future wife, Sabina Fascione, a native of Pisa, Italy.
Sabina Fascione is a textile designer by trade. Prior to cultivating a career as a botanical artist, Sabina worked for prestigious textile design firms in both Como, Italy, and New York. Her botanical paintings are the natural outgrowth of the many years spent dedicated to the translation of complex floral motifs into highly stylized patterns.
Since 1986 Stephen, Sabina, and their two daughters, have lived and worked in the village of Cambridge, in upstate New York. Working in a variety of disparate, yet mutually complementary styles and techniques, Stephen and Sabina work side by side in a multi-faceted, 19th century carriage house, where they incorporate a unique blend of studio related activities and rotating exhibitions of their work.
