MARY ELLEN PALMERI with her painting "Joy" before giving it to the buyer.
Born on the West coast of the US and raised in upstate New York State I now live in the American Southwest near Tucson,
AZ. Making art was my first love
as a child, and art continues to impact my life every day. Although I grew up in a small town I had a lot
of artistic influence from my family; my father loved art & music, one of his brothers was a professional artist, my
mother always encouraged making hand-made gifts and cards, and two of my five sisters are also artists.
Majored in art in high school and college, earning a BS in Art from Nazareth College of Rochester, NY.
Also earned a MS in Education from the same school, which enabled me to balance a teaching profession with my art
while raising my two children. I still enjoy teaching art workshops and love the exchange of inspiration
that always takes place in my classes.
