Biography from Southport Galleries:
Melissa Barbieri, who lives in Essex and paints out of her Greenwich studio, has 'rolled up her sleeves' to master the demanding ancient method of 'fresco secco'.  These sparkling panels featuring a single image of coral, octopus, fish, seahorse, are the results of diligent attention to form and technique, and of mixing, handling and perfect measuring of combinations of plaster and tempera.

Born and raised in Fairfield, Connecticut, Barbieri learned to paint on site at Southport harbor under the aegis of her grandmother, Mary Taylor, absorbing her "en plein air" approach.  At the age of 14, Melissa began studying under Frank Covino at his academic studio.

Her direction towards Italian Renaissance methods continued at the Ringling School of Art & Design in Sarasota, Florida.  It was during a study trip in Rome that she developed an intensive investigation into fresco painting.  Of her work, she says:. "I am gaining confidence - who knows what new murals and commissions will come my way," says Barbieri - "I am in awe of these Renaissance teachers."
