The Artist

P a s s a r e l l i

Robert A. Passarelli

The artist was born in Mount Holly, New Jersey in 1969. His artistic talents were noticed by several local artists and teachers at a very young age. The Scholastic Art Awards Gold Key and the New Jersey Governors Art Awards provided a scholarship for a higher education in art.  He graduated from The Savannah College of Art and Design with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration.

During the college years his portfolio grew as well as his passion to pursue a career in golf. After graduation, the starving artist’s years were cut short with a decision to pursue his other life long dream of becoming a PGA Professional. He attained membership into the PGA of America in 2003. During his twenty year career in professional golf, his art experience evolved into advertising and marketing responsibilities for his respective organizations. Several commissions for paintings and illustrations at prestigious golf clubs in the Philadelphia area have provided the fuel for his return to art once again.

Artwork provided a release for the artist for many years and his creations are now providing inspiration to others in the art world. Robert Passarelli’s works are in corporate and private collections in many cities across the United States. He is currently an Adjunct Instructor at Wilmington University teaching Design and Art courses.  He resides in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania where he and his wife are raising their 3 children.
