About Allegra Jordan
Allegra Jordan is a painter based in Beacon, NY. She was born and spent her early years in Asia before settling in the Hudson Valley, NY. In 2013, Jordan began painting with oil, a medium that enabled her to be emotionally expressive within texture and movement. At 19 years old, she became a single mother and moved with her son to Beacon to pursue her art. Her work explores themes of young parenthood, grief, sexuality, and maturity during late-stage capitalism.
