"The Red Man"

"Without a plan, my imagination takes charge. There is a freedom in this method, a whole library of pictures in my mind... and a lifetime of ‘seeing’ brings it all together in the end.”

Rose Marie Strippoli began her career in the arts as a Seamstress, eventually developing award winning skills as an Abstract painter. She paints with intricate splashes of color and surging contours. Rose Marie's paintings are bright and intense. What strikes the viewer is that she does not repeat a pattern or a stroke; each painting evolves with its own abstraction. There is a mystery in Rose Marie’s work, subtleties that quietly emerge in the background or fade in the storm that swirls around them. Rose Marie is an avid artist who paints every spare moment, any hour of the day – she works on five to ten pieces at a time. “Each time I look at the canvas, there is a new painting - I see it with different eyes."

Rose Marie is the featured artist in the AOY April 2009 newsletter.
