Roberta Boatti is a long time Seabrook resident and active member of the Seabrook Island Artist Guild. A former media and public relations professional in New York, Roberta began coming to Seabrook part-time in 1991 with her husband Peter and settled here permanently in 2000.
Her desire to create art was nurtured as a young girl in her mother’s art studio and she began taking drawing classes at James Island High School in 2001. She has been pursuing her goal with other teachers by adding lessons in pen and ink drawing, watercolor, acrylic and oil painting. She now works primarily in oil. She loves to paint in bright vibrant colors and is inspired by the lushness of the south and its Gullah culture.
Please stop by the Lakehouse during the month of September and view her paintings in the Gallery.
