"My focus in art is not the subject matter or style, but simply and solely the act of creating."
Nella was born, raised and educated in Italy. From a very early age she was surrounded by her family’s love for the arts, from visual to music to poetry, it became part of her existence and never left her. Nella maintains that her life in Italy shaped her into the artist she now is. She is a full-time artist and exhibits widely in galleries in the US and abroad including in England and Italy.
Nella's two workshops on February 27 and March 5 at the NAA are sold out. Check her website here for additional classes.
"My art is an extension of my life, a release of what I feel in that particular moment when I place that first brush stroke, that first mark, that first scribble. It evolves on its own and never following a formula. Even at times when I feel dry of creativity I will go to the canvas and play with colors or just scribbling. I could easily get a photo out and get creative that way but I chose not to do that, I want all that comes out to be mine and mine alone."
Nella is the founder of the Experimental Group for the Rockport Art Association, the President of the Massachusetts Chapter of the National Association of Women Artists, Inc. NYC, artist and Board of Trustees member of RAA, NSAA and NAWA, NY, Signature Member and North East representative of the American Society of Marine Artists.
