Tom Rossetti is a native Floridian, born in Fort Lauderdale in 1963. He graduated from Florida Atlantic University in 1986 with B.F.A degrees in Fine Art and Art History. Artistically, Rossetti is classically trained and has developed into an Abstract Expressionist. Rossetti states: I have always loved the Expressionists! Mark Rothko, Helen Frankenthaler, Willem de Kooning and Francis Bacon have definitely influenced my current style. I love the freedom of expressing emotions as I paint, however, most of the time I let the paint itself direct the mood and composition of my canvases. Rossetti is also gifted in the area of Interior and Landscape Design and is an accomplished pianist and published poet. a contemporary Renaissance Man of sorts. This may be contributed to his rich family heritage. His descendants can be traced back to the famous Pre-Raphaelite painter Dante Gabrielle Rossetti and his poet sister Christina Georgina Rossetti. Mr. Rossetti is also a sought after and respected juror for many of the South Florida art exhibitions and shows. His works are in private collections in the United States and in Europe.
