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 and themes to behold its beauty, offer hope and respite for healing, and reminisce in comforts. 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 atmosphere while offering a scene of reality or from imagination.

Education History and Art Academic Mentors
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 mentored by Sergio Roffo, Joseph McGurl, Tom Dunlay, and David Curtis. She also studied genre and portrait painting under the highly-esteemed master, Hongnian Zhang and wife, Lois Woolley, of New York where she continues to receive private mentoring.

A Passion for Teaching Art
Rosemarie took an early retirement from the commercial art world to dedicate herself to her dream career of being an exhibition painter while running her own studio art school focused on providing teens with quality academic art training in painting and drawing that would round out and supplement their high school and college art programs. She also teaches multi-media to younger children ages 9 and up and oil painting classes to adults. “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.”

Rosemarie has taught workshops and classes since 1990 as a visiting artist at Art Associations, Public Schools and through her own studios. She began teaching full time as Rosemarie Morelli Art Studio School in Walpole in 2010. As an artist, she has over 30 years exhibiting and selling paintings in galleries, solo shows and juried exhibition in New England beginning with her first sale in 1985. She is currently active as a juried artist member of Oil Painters of America and Cape Cod Art Association; member of Dedham Art Association, Duxbury Art Association, Norwood Art Association and is an anchor artist at Norwood Fine Artists Gallery. She has won many awards and currently sells her paintings at Cape Cod Art Center Gallery and Norwood Fine Artists GalleryArt

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!”
