Sergio Roffo

Sergio Roffo, born in 1953 and the youngest of six children, was born in San Donato, Italy. His family immigrated to Boston, where he spent his youth and eventually attended Vesper George School of Art in Boston, graduating with honors. As a professional artist, Roffo continually strives to capture the elusive essence that is Nature. Sergio has been inspired by the work of American traditional painters such as Inness & Bierstadt, among others. Using atmospheric perspective that conveys a relaxed sense of calmness, a characteristic that defines all of his works, Roffo strives to reveal luminous, masterful feeling in both his coastal and landscape works. His captivating depictions of the New England landscape have been included in a variety of museum exhibitions and have earned him many awards, including two prestigious “Grumbacher Gold Medals” and the “Yankee Sagendorph Award” presented by Yankee Magazine. In 1994, Roffo was the winner of the Massachusetts Duck Stamp, winning on his first attempt, where others spend years trying. An elected member of the Guild of Boston Artists, Sergio’s work is included in many private and publicly owned collections. He has also been selected for inclusion in numerous publications, such as Cape Cod Life and Down East Magazine. Mr. Roffo resides in Scituate, Massachusetts, with his wife and two daughters.
