A Note From Dear Friend,
Margery Fischer Winter

“It was 1965 and Ingrid Jacobson was my roommate in Nickerson Hall at the Rhode Island School of Design. Music took center stage in our artistic coming of age movie. Ingrid would play her guitar and sing me to sleep with exquisite covers. What impressed me about young Ingrid was her focus, intensity, and passion for life. It was contagious.

Ingrid came to RISD with an already impressive resume – an award winning artist and accomplished folksinger. Her style was a mix of Carnaby Street, Merimekko, Mary Quant, thrift shop.

Her voice was very much her own.

Ing held every gift in the palm of her hands, but she also held much sadness in her heart. Her mother had died young and so she had a deep fear of loss. Was this a foreshadowing of what was to come? She lost Jim, her beloved dad, her voice…but she didn’t lose her passion and determination.

Ingrid’s intense about everything – involved in things and connected in things. And that intensity, that barrel of energy, is in her art. She passionately holds on to things as if to create a collage or scrapbook of her life and not to lose the memories.

She now refers to these things that she collages, her symbolic images, as “muchness.”

In Your Own Words

What People Are Saying About Ingrid Croce Art



@ ingridcroceart

At your best, you are everything all at once.

My heart is full with appreciation for the support I received at this past weekend’s @Vanguardculture Breakthrough 70’s event. The 70’s was a pivotal decade for me and my family, this event was the perfect ode to that time.
I am blessed to have my family around me, especially my Mom who turns 97 this year! Happy Easter!
Today, on the 30th anniversary of the brutal attack on my dear friend, Trish Meili, I am honored to share our conversation.
“I had a small period of no memory - from about five o’clock the evening the attack happened, until about seven weeks later... I couldn’t worry about the future.

Being able to roll over. Or touch my nose. That made me feel better: oh! I’m seeing improvement.

One of the greatest advantages of my brain injury was that I focused on the present moment.

I’ve often called that time ‘Learning To Begin Again.”
...Trisha Meili *

Trish is simply a survivor. As “The Central Park Jogger” she inspires so many around the world with her determination, her strength, her spirit.

I hope her words give you courage to face life’s trials! 💜
