Artists' Bios

The works of art shown on these pages appear courtesy of the artists.
All works © Marco Sassone and Michael Reardon.

Marco Sassone was born in the Tuscan village of Campi Bisenzio in 1942, and later moved with his family to Florence, where he met painters who encouraged him to follow his interest in art. In 1967, soon after the flood had devastated his city, Sassone traveled to the United States and settled in California. He has participated in a variety of exhibitions in the U.S. and abroad, and is currently living and working in Toronto and Florence. Sassone’s intensely envisioned landscapes and cityscapes are characterized by a heightened sense of color and a powerfully expressive gestural style. (

Michael Reardon is an award-winning watercolorist based in Oakland, California. An avid traveller, he is inspired to create by landscapes and architecture from around the world.

He is a signature member of the National Watercolor Society, Watercolor West, and the California Watercolor Association. He is also an Artist member of the California Art Club. (
