Simone Olivia Moritz

Simone Olivia Moritz was born in Prien am Chiemssee, Germany in 1985. Her family always had a great interest in art, and her humanistic education has been of significant influence on her. She soon felt a strong desire to become a professional painter and has continuously pursued this goal. After finishing her diploma in Art and Latin she worked for two years as an assistant in a painter’s studio while doing freelance commissions. In 2006 she enrolled at The Florence Academy of Art to deepen her studies and achieve the tools needed to express herself as an artist. She has been teaching at the Academy since 2009, and is an esteemed member of the Intensive Drawing faculty. Her work has been shown in several group and solo shows and is in private collections throughout Europe and the United States.
