EYES ON ITALY
Rossella was born in Trieste, Italy, arrived Australia in 1955 and was educated in Melbourne.
Rosella was very young when she showed aptitude for drawing and art, in its many forms and mediums. Art has always been part of her life.
Relocating to Noosa opened up another avenue of creative learning by joining the Botanical Art Group at Noosa Arts and Crafts in 2004. Painting from specimens, encouraged her to observe and appreciate the intrinsic beauty of flowers and plants as well as learn to use watercolour. As part of this group, Rossella exhibited her work with the Botanical Artists’ Society of Queensland in 2008 and 2009.
Rossella has continued to expand her knowledge and expertise in the use of acrylics and incorporated still life, landscapes, portraits as well as the human form. She exhibited her acrylic artwork in the Kenilworth Art Exhibition in 2014 and 2015.
For the past few years, under the tutelage of local, well-known artist, Don Milner, her confidence and skill in the use of acrylics has increased and she continues to enjoy this journey.
