Mariarosa Rockefeller loved to draw and paint as a child, but until her retirement from teaching mathematics at Utica College of Syracuse University, she had not been able to devote the time she wanted to art. Since moving to Florida with her husband and fellow artist, Roger (who also taught at UCSU), she has been “like a kid in a candy shop,” working with a variety of media including watercolor, pastels, pen & ink, and colored pencils. She has also been able to indulge her love of photography.
Her work has been accepted in numerous shows, in New York and locally, winning prizes in both painting and photography. She is a member of the Florida Watercolor Society and a Signature Member of the Florida Suncoast Watercolor Society. (From islandgallerywest.com)
