About Rose Yannuzzi

I am a watercolor artist and photographer. My college training was in Biology, and I was awarded a MS in Molecular Biology from Fairleigh Dickinson University. Growing up in New Jersey, I was immersed in art of various forms, first music, then writing, subsequently photography, and later in life, painting. My interest in painting developed in the last 13 years, during which I developed my skills as a watercolor artist.

I am self-taught and have also studied with artists Arthur Gilmore, Peggy Dressel, Max Horbund, Mel Stabin, John Creagh, James McFarlane, and Carlton Plummer. I studied photography with G. Steve Jordan and Norma Brown Hill

Artist’s Statement

The natural world has such a diversity of beauty. I try to impart the sense of spirituality and the poetic beauty of nature in my art. I draw my inspiration from landscapes, flowers, birds, and other subjects in nature that I see every day and those that I experience when I travel. My subjects are landscapes, waterscapes, flowers, and any subjects that reflect the beauty of the natural world. To lessen the chaos of everyday life, I create paintings and photographs that provide a sense of tranquility, serenity, and peacefulness to those who view them. I try and capture that special moment in time knowing that it will never occur again.
