Pat Fiorello is a
professional artist who especially enjoys capturing the beauty and
energy of nature in her vibrant oil and watercolor paintings. She is
known for her romantic paintings of landscapes, gardens and florals.
Self taught at first, Pat later studied with noted artists to develop
her talents and skills. In 2002, she left her V.P. marketing position
with The Coca-Cola Company to pursue her passion for art and concentrate
on painting full time. Now she teaches others to paint at the Spruill
Center for the Arts in Atlanta and other places in the U. S., Caribbean
and Europe. Pat’s family name “Fiorello” comes from an Italian lineage
meaning “one who lives near a wall of flowers,” so it’s no accident that
she is drawn to painting flowers and other scenes which capture the
essence and beauty of nature.
Pat paints both in her home studio and on location. She has painted
while traveling to places including Tuscany & Lake Como in Italy,
Provence & Monet’s Garden in Giverny, France, Ireland, Bermuda, St.
Thomas and the Canadian Rockies. Pat is a Signature Member of the
Georgia Watercolor Society and a member of Oil Painters of America. Her
work has been featured in over 70-juried shows, over a dozen “one
woman” exhibits, including being the featured artist at the State
Botanical Garden of Georgia and Callaway Gardens, and is in numerous
private collections across the country. Her images have been licensed
for greeting cards and home décor products. North Light Books recently
published her work in Splash 11: The Best of Watercolor. Pat has served
as President of the Georgia Watercolor Society and Chairman of the
Atlanta Artists Center.
