April Rocco, a local mixed-media artist in Cocoa Village, brings a unique style of artwork to the Space Coast.
She is a second-generation native Floridian, who grew up in Daytona Beach and has always had a passion for drawing.
“My earliest memories are of painting and making crafts,” said Rocco.
“I found an interest in painting when I became a scenic painter for major theme park productions during the 1990s in Orlando,” said Rocco.
“Working as a scenic painter, alongside many talented people, allowed me to become the artist I am today. I learned the foundation of painting and gained experience by working on the sets of “Twister,” “Cat in the Hat,” and “Jurassic Park.”
After four years as a scenic painter in Orlando, Rocco moved to Brevard County and has developed a fierce passion for painting.
What makes Rocco’s art unique is that she prefers to paint on wood and different substrates, instead of just an ordinary canvas.
“I strive to make art that not only satisfies my customers but also myself,” said Rocco.
“I enjoy making mixed media art, using different materials for each painting. For instance, I use acrylic, watercolor and watercolored pencils in a painting.”
Rocco’s only challenge with art is finding the time to create her artwork while working two jobs.
“I find there is no better joy in my life than waking up at 5 a.m.to paint,” said Rocco.
“Painting is my passion. Even with two jobs, I find the time to paint. I always say find something you love to do. Making art has been my life long passion.”
