Mary Rose Deraco is a Los Angeles based artist. Her art studio is in a converted open air garage that sits on top of a hill overlooking the Los Angeles basin. Her work is colorful, lyrical and painterly. She considers art making a spiritual and theraputic practice. She works on a large scale, throwing her body and soul into the work, moving up on ladders, lifting the work onto the floor, pouring and moving paint on huge surfaces with mixed media. Music is the back beat behind her gestural lines and shapes. Through her daily mindful art practice, she has developed a unique and accessible inner voice. Her expressive paintings communicate themes of transformation that have allowed her to connect with people in a mystical way that heals and nurtures the soul. Thank you for visiting her online studio. Enjoy the show and let us know what you think!
