Welcome to the Web site of Harriet Silverstein, widely exhibited fine artist and art teacher who lives in South Florida. Ms. Silverstein’s paintings, drawings and prints have been shown throughout the United States and Europe. She has also completed a number of corporate commissions for major corporations, fine restaurants and major hotels throughout the United States. She studied fine art and art history at Brown University, the State University New York at Albany, l’Academie des Arts Decoratif in Strasbourg, France and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Skowhegan, Maine. Ms. Silverstein has taught fine art, art history and architectural history at Hofstra University in Hempstead, NY, Queensborough Community College in Bayside, NY, Broward County Public Schools in Florida and the Cleveland Clinic Hospital in Weston, Florida. Ms. Silverstein’s artwork has been featured in a number of major publications, including the New York Times and Newsday.

After a long hibernation, she rediscovered her childhood passion for art as an adult. Once reawakened to her innate passion, which she called her second coming out, she studied with various accomplished figurative artists in New York City, and went on to formalize her training by receiving my MFA from the Graduate School of Figurative Arts of the New York Academy of Art, in 2003.

Among her great master inspirations is Picasso, with his perchance to constant reinvention and bold experimentation. She believes he successfully liberated contemporary artists, like herself, to explore different media, styles and techniques. Her versatility in media, for example, extends to painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, and digital mixed media collage.

Further, regardless of medium used, Rosaria also explores different styles and themes, sometimes even simultaneously. With this creative freedom, she subscribes to the philosophy that art serves as a bridge from our primal essence to our higher selves, and, ultimately, to the divine.
