Biography
 
DRAWN TO THE MOMENT
 
Rosanne Lillard Mckenney, first saw  light and color, in Madison Wisconsin.  Born to  American parents, but she grew up in Naples, Italy from the age of 3 months. Surrounded by an abundance of classical and Renaissance art throughout her childhood, Rosanne grew to love the beauty and impact  the artists who had gone before, left on her environment.  Though Rosanne did not pursue a degree in art, her appreciation for presenting beauty through art, grew exponentially when she left her beloved Italy, at the age of 18 , to go to University in the U.S.
After living on the Mississippi Gulf Coast of the USA for 10 years, Rosanne moved with her husband Jeff McKenney and their young family to Honduras where she and her husband have worked as medical missionaries among the poor for the past 19 years.
In the first 15 years in her 3rd new culture, Rosanne, taught art through history to national children, her own and those of coworkers, seeking to convey the essence of past cultures through their art.   Young students learned along with Rosanne how to make frescos, assemble mosaics, and paint with egg tempera and oil.
Whether it meets a longing for something she misses from her childhood or is   simply an appreciation for God’s creation and a desire to express this, the creative process, specifically painting, sustains Rosanne daily.  Life’s challenges can be met in stride when there is a chance to create something meaningful in the studio. Recently, she spends  more time in her other beloved home on the Gulf Coast of MS, where Rosanne finds new inspirations, to share through paint.  
In spite of the challenging business of life in the developing country and adoptive home of Honduras, Rosanne makes time each day to paint, often spending the early morning hours in her studio before going to work.   [...]
