I can not remember a time when I did not feel at home as an artist. While I appreciate the importance of showing and sharing my work, my heart has always been in the creative process of expressing the way I look at the world through my art.
I see lines. I see shapes. I see movement. I see patterns and colors. I want to translate, abstract and highlight the parts I see, so others can feel the story and the history. Each piece tells a story of what I saw, what I thought and felt and where I was in world.
I have traveled and lived around the world with my husband, first with the military, then with his work. From the east coast to the south and to the west coast of the United States and overseas to South Africa, Venezuela and The Netherlands. All have had a profound impact on me, including the art and architecture, the people, and especially their local art, artists and teachers.
I love the process of applying what I learn. This has worked into my original perspective, but tweaked to suit my needs. I work my art like a puzzle, fitting in pieces, color and techniques, trying them and removing them if they do not fit.
I am starting to see a convergence of all I have learned over the years. I am considering bringing together my love of photography, collage, textiles, mixed media, encaustic and cold wax into a larger, or three-dimensional perspective of the world.
“Beneath the Surface” by RoseMarie Davio will be on view in Sandstone’s Skylight Gallery on Historic Gallery Row in Laguna Beach. Davio works intuitively with “The Rhythm of the Canvas” in her non-objective abstract paintings. She applies these same techniques to her collages, encaustics, and photography.

RoseMarie lives and works in San Clemente, California . When you enter her studio you will find her art started in a different direction than what you see in her art today.
Folk Art Dolls, Nantucket Lightship Baskets, Shaker Baskets and molds are among the many items in her studio. RoseMarie’s Folk Dolls were sold at museum shops in New York: The American Folk Art Museum in New York City; The Genesee County Village and Museum in Mumford, New York; and The Stone Tolan House in Rochester, New York, as well as gift shops in New York, Connecticut and California.
RoseMarie has also had her photography on the cover of “Going Dutch” an American Women’s Club (AWC The Hague) magazine in 1999 and 2000, and through her travels and relocations, RoseMarie has taught classes in California, New York and Venezuela.
Back in California, she found herself wanting to put paint to canvas, and has used these experiences and tools, to intuitively incorporate and create the mixed media surface textured work she is creating today.
RoseMarie works uses acrylic, collage, encaustic, cold wax and photography in ways that will enhance and change her art, as she brings the past, present and future, as she moves around the “Rhythm of the Canvas”
RoseMarie’s work can be seen at the Sandstone Gallery in Laguna Beach, California, on Historical Gallery Row.
