About Pat Fiorello
Pat Fiorello is a professional artist and a popular art instructor known for her impressionistic landscapes and floral paintings in oil and watercolor. Inspired to make the expression of beauty a higher priority in her life, in 2002, she left a successful 20-year career as a Marketing Vice President with major corporations including The Coca-Cola Company, and made a dramatic life change to become a full-time artist. “I was driven by a desire to create beautiful things,” she says. “Through my painting and teaching others how to paint, I hope to inspire in people a deeper awareness and appreciation of the beauty around us and share the joy of painting.” Pat’s Italian family name “Fiorello” means “one who lives near a wall of flowers,” so she seemed destined to have a passion for the romantic landscapes and elegant flowers that she captures in her paintings. Based in Atlanta, she teaches painting workshops in the United States, the Caribbean and Europe, especially, France and Italy. Pat has studied with noted artists Marilyn Simandle, Hedi Moran, Betty Carr, Mel Stabin and Charles Reid. A Signature Member of the Georgia Watercolor Society, she has served as president of the organization. She is a member of Oil Painters of America, American Impressionist Society and has been Chairman of the Atlanta Artists Center. Pat’s paintings have been in over 75-juried shows and more than 25 one-woman exhibits, including being the featured artist at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia and Callaway Gardens. Her work has been licensed for greeting cards and home décor products and appeared in the book Splash 11, The Best of Watercolor, published by North Light Books. Pat’s paintings hang in numerous private collections across the country and she is represented by Frameworks Gallery in Atlanta and Burton Gallery in Clarkesville, Georgia. In 2015, Ms. Fiorello taught at Monet`s Garden in Giverny, France. While there, she won first prize in an annual plein air painting competition and was invited back to exhibit her work at the "Laureate de la Fete de la Peinture" exposition in France. Pat is author of the book, "Bella Italia, Italy Through the Eyes of an Artist" published by Morton Arts Media in 2013.
