BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – April Rocco, an accomplished multimedia artist from Brevard County in Cocoa Village, has released an all-new series of paintings highlighting Florida’s landscape and entertainment personalities.
April, who currently works at Ryan’s in Cocoa Village and has been a hospitality professional in Brevard County for 20 years, will be taking time off to heal after knee surgery.
All proceeds from the Special Series paintings will go toward her medical expenses related to surgery and rehabilitation.
April is a second-generation Floridian, who grew up in Daytona Beach and has always had a passion for drawing.
“My earliest memories are of painting and doing crafts,” April said.
“I found an interest in painting when I became a scenic painter for major theme park productions in the 1990s in Orlando. Working as a scenic painter, alongside many talented people, allowed me to become the artist that I am today, I learned the basics of painting and gained experience working on sets for “Twister”, “Cat in the Hat” and “Jurassic Park”.
