About the Artist: Romagean Personne’s work has been exhibited at colleges, -universities, museums and in numerous shows across the United States, most notably in Virginia, Washington, Colorado and Florida. From her roots in Virginia, her studies have taken her from the east to the west coast and eventually to England and Europe. She did an in-depth study of Henry Moore in Leeds, England and received a grant from the state of Colorado for art research on Old Masters’ methods throughout Europe. She enjoys teaching and working with students no matter what their level and ability may be.
She was commissioned by Robert P. Warren of Florida to paint the Jupiter Lighthouse. Upon delivering the work she fell in love with the excitement of climbing, researching their history and painting lighthouses. After a yearlong study and painting all of Florida’s 30 lighthouses she now teaches art in her Colorado studio and continues both commissions, works and subjects of interest to her.
Romagean is a member of the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, D.C., associate member of Oil Painters of America, Lighthouse Gallery and School of Art, Tequesta, FL, Ouray County Arts Association, Ouray, CO, and Montrose Art Association, Montrose, CO.
