About Rosemarie Morelli

About the Paintings
In a world of chaos and distractions, Rosemarie seeks to render a quieter world that connects with and welcomes viewers into her paintings for enjoyment, inspiration and calm reflection. Nature and nature’s light are the stage and set-up for her subjects. Her oil landscapes, still life and genre scenes are painted on-site “en plein air” from the ledge of a seascape, a meadow, a European rooftop, or by the studio window illuminated by natural light so to achieve a more truthful likeness and realistic atmosphere from the imagination.

Rosemarie longed to learn to paint like the masters from the early age of 8 when she was introduced to the MFA. Her business college degree from UMass along with more graduate studies at BC was her admission ticket to enter into the lucrative commercial design, advertising and art consulting world which reset her path in the fine art direction — moving on to soak up every studio art class in graphic design, painting and illustration at local art schools and museums by night while growing a successful graphic design career by day. At age 32 she met Robert Douglas Hunter, where she learned of the Boston School of Painters that led to training under Nadia Mahfuz for 7 years in the disciplines of 19thcentury French Academy. She then continued with workshops and private mentoring under Hongnian Zhang, Lois Woolley, David Curtis, Thomas Dunlay, Sergio Roffo, and Joseph McGurl.

A Passion for Teaching Art
Rosemarie is dedicated to running her studio art school focused on providing teens and adults with quality academic art training in painting and drawing to round out and supplement their high school and college art programs. She also teaches multi-media to younger children ages 8 and up. “My goal is to teach a more thorough foundation of art academics that may empower my students with the knowledge and confidence necessary to better develop their personal voice.” She has taught workshops and classes since 1990 as a visiting artist at Art Associations and Public Schools .

She is currently active as a juried artist member of Oil Painters of America and Cape Cod Art Association; member of the Dedham Art Association and the League of Professional Artists.

Rosemarie Morelli is a professional fine art painter and instructor dedicated full-time to teaching children, teens and adults how to paint and draw well with an emphasis on “enjoying the learning process!”
