Mary Giammatteo Gerlach

Painting, Photography

As a professional artist, my work is driven by my desire to create a “strong visual communication.”  Currently my visual imagery is focused on tropical themes, floral imagery and beloved domestic pet portraits.  My work is not limited to these areas, but I am able to continue to challenge my creativity with these themes and much joy has evolved with this focus to date.

Creative & Professional Highlights
• Early exposure to the arts was provided by a loving family that supported all forms of the arts and fostered open thinking.
• Passion and training for the arts began in college.
• Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Art Education from Central Connecticut State University and University of Connecticut.
• Thirty plus years of teaching experience as an art educator, secondary level in Connecticut and post secondary-Daytona State College, Florida.

Currently teaching a painting class at Artists’ Workshop and The Hub on Canal.
