Artist in Bari, Italy
Anna Maria Di Terlizzi is a versatile, eclectic artist who works in a large variety of media. San Nicola, the patron saint of Bari, is a favored subject. She sculpts in bronze, resin, collage, wood and ceramic. She also does two-dimensional work in paintings and block prints. Puppets are even part of the repetoire. Here is a sampling of her work as seen primarily in her Bari studio. Ms. Di Terlizzi has served on the faculty of the Istituto Statle d'Arte.
