Episode 51: Brooke talks with accomplished visual artist Rosetta DeBerardinis about her art, her inspiration, her process and about her experience as an artist. DeBerardinis is a New Yorker who now has a full-time studio practice in Washington, D.C., just a short walk away from Capitol Hill. Her large abstract paintings have been exhibited nationally and internationally in museums, commercial galleries and art venues and included in both public and private collections. She has won awards from the District of Columbia Commission on the Arts and Humanities and has been featured in The Guardian, The Washington Post, and Richmond Times-Dispatch and other publications.
Before embarking on a career as a full-time artist DeBerardinis was a corporate attorney, a playwright, a writer and editor with numerous by-lines, as well as a competitive fencer who trained with the U.S. Olympic Team. She also happens to be a lively and insightful conversationalist.
