Acrylic on canvas

I am an artist and writer purposefully lost in the process of self-discovery. I don't ever want to stop being surprised. I don't work in one medium. I don't have a specific style. Each piece is created in a different moment.

I strive to reflect a sense of humanity in whatever I create, whether the piece is a vampire or vixen, chupacabra or a tree. In 2016, I published Love of the Monster, my illustrated collection of love poems. Each of my writing pieces is married to one of my creature illustrations.

I've shown my work in small public venues around Orange County, NY. I've had a one-woman show through the Washingtonville Art Society. I've judged the Moffat Library's Annual Student Art Show for the past eight years. I also do a bit of commissioned work including portraits and murals.

What inspires me? I find inspiration with my eyes open, even when they are closed.



the true meaning of art

      by AM Roselli    


he asks
why do I have to take art

I respond
art is not something you take
it is something you give


she says
I can only draw stick figures
I respond
life saving fire is created
with simple sticks


they say
we can’t do anything right
I respond
you’re in good company
now put all your wrongs together
and make beautiful art
