Rosemary Valente
My introduction to art began while living in Hawaii in the 70's.  I dabbled in ceramics, printmaking and photography before feeling at home with paint and canvas. The islands provided the backdrop and inspiration for my early works.  Later, travels to Europe inspired me to transcribe the essence of each romantic setting using vibrant colors and adding a bit of Whimsy.  I continue to experiment not only with landscapes but move toward a more abstract image that allows the viewer to interpret the meaning.. Music Without Words!!
