Biography



My name is Angeli Petrocco-Coover.  I was born and raised on my family’s vegetable farm in Colorado. 
 
I currently live in Hulett, Wyoming, a small town near Devils Tower, in northeast Wyoming.
 
My mother had an eye for artistic talent, and she noticed it in me.  She entered one of my drawings in a national magazine art contest at the tender age of four.  I was a finalist in McCall’s Magazine.
 
Fifteen years ago, I enrolled in an art class in Scottsdale, AZ.  I was introduced to pastels.  I knew the minute I picked up the sticks that this would be my chosen medium.  The colors are bold, beautiful, delicious, and pure pigment.  They are messy, but they are fun, and they make me happy.
 
I continue to study and attend workshops from many well-known artists in the United Sates and abroad.  I spent a great deal of time in Italy, painting under the warm, sunny, Tuscany sun, and discovering family roots that go back to the 15th c.  I found Roman architecture, art, history, and sculptures, intriguing and inspirational.
 
Living in the Black Hills region with my husband Todd, a golf professional, I am again surrounded by a beautiful golf course, Ponderosa pines, open fields, flower gardens, cowboys, and I can’t forget my friendly Safeway florist.  They all inspire me to express my love for them on canvas. 
 
My long career in advertising for Nursery and Landscape businesses, along with being a farmer’s daughter, has inspired me to paint. It’s who I am.
