HOW TO ORDER

The Venetian Cat Studio works primarily on commissions-we do not have items in stock (unless noted). We work in oils on canvas and pencil on vellum; all paintings and drawings are of archival quality. Each work we sell is an original. We specialize in realism and do not copy or create impressionist or abstract art.

 

About the Artist:

Hello, my name is Julia Passamonti-Colamartino.

I am a bilingual first generation Italian-American and full time artist. Each work that I create is unique, with careful attention being paid to workmanship and detail.

My creativity manifests itself through oils and clay: specifically, portraiture, landscape and seascape paintings, still life, and until recently, the reproduction of ancient vessels. My vision is to combine painting with my love for history and create original pieces that reflect who I am and how I see the world around me. My mission is to assemble a body of work and then, find a venue to share it, with art lovers in my community and beyond, in galleries, online, or both. My goal is to continue creating indefinitely.


My passion for things ancient began as a child inspired by frequent visits to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts as well as trips to Italy visiting relatives. There, I saw paintings and vases decorated with ornate, delicate designs that included figures set in ancient landscapes, and I wanted very much to learn how to create them myself. Unfortunately, because these methods were not taught in U.S. schools, it has taken me many years of experimentation to learn them. Although I hold a bachelor’s degree in fine arts and an associate’s degree in graphic design, I am mostly self-taught, always searching for new techniques to expand my horizons. Our studio is in Las Vegas New Mexico, where I reside with 3 beautiful kitties, wild peacocks and loving neighbors.

Dino Colamartino, my Beloved partner, Soulmate, and Best Friend, transcended this reality in October of 2017. You are sorely missed, my love. RIP (1958-2017)
