Francesca D'Elia

Francesca D'Elia grew up in a small town on Cape Cod, Harwichport. She attended the Museum School of Fine Art in Boston. Francesca traveled to Florence, Italy, enrolled at the University of Florence (Academia) to studied art and voice with a private teachers, she moved to New York City to study art at the Student league, and voice with Estelle Liebling, who was instrumental in my being hired by the Metropolitan Opera Company at age 21. During this time I had two one woman shows at Crespi Gallery on Madison Ave. After 7 years, since it was not possible to continue pursuing both disciplines, I resigned from the Opera company. I married, gave birth to a wonderful son, Aaron, and 2 years later divorced becoming a single parent, living on Newbury Street, Boston. There I met my current husband, Peter Latham, a well known Industrial Designer who introduced me to watercolor, as my prime medium had been pastel. Since then I have been a full time professional fine art artist. I have over 500 paintings in over 300 collections. I am most grateful for the opportunity to do what I love--to paint!!
