LILY FORMATO

Local Wythe Artist Portfolio

“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” 
―Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Le Petit Prince 

Growing up in Wytheville, Virginia shaped who I am. My self-expression through music and painting comes from my heart. I have been painting from a very young age and through the years into adulthood, I learned that my best work comes from a special place deep inside me. I hope my art can inflict deep emotions to you. 

 

ARTIST'S BIO

Since arriving on the scene at four years old, I've had a lot of work to do on myself. I went to boarding school for my high school career. Asheville School helped me grow intellectually and support my dreams of becoming an artist. I sang in my school's chorus, was apart of five theatrical productions, and crafted my songwriting abilities. During my senior year instead of attending math class, I switched to studio art classes, thus catalyzed my distinct style of painting. I will never stop learning and creating new and better my work for my audience.
