Artist Bio

Background:
Salvatore Scalisi is
Sicilian born with
roots in a simple and
resource conserving
country shortly after
the Second World
War.
Rita Schwab is
German born into an
equally survival
oriented society.
Their choice to leave
their home countries
for the Americas was
mutual; to seek
adventure and
fortune in a more
progressive freedom
filled environment;
giving them the
opportunity for
greater artistic
expression.

Salvatore Scalisi is a
self taught artist.  He
has been painting for
the past 40 years,
keeping a studio in
Miami and New York.  
He has shown his
paintings in countless
exhibitions, juried art
shows and galleries
throughout the
United States and
Europe.  His works
are collected by many
art lovers all over the
world.

Rita Schwab received
a Bachelor’s of Fine
Art in 1977 from
University of South
Florida in Tampa.  
She earned a Masters
Degree in Fiber art in
the early 80’s.  She
has remained an
independent artist
ever since, keeping
studios in northern
Florida, western
North Carolina and
the Catskills in New
York.
