Born in 1964 in South Florida. Zappitell's studio is located in Delray Beach, Florida and she now lives in Boca Raton, FL with her husband and three children after spending six years in Santa Fe, NM. She creates abstract expressionist works not only born out of intuition but also serendipitously influenced by nature and life experiences. Although mostly self taught, she has attended classes and workshops in New Mexico, Mexico and Florida. Her work is in both private and public collections, including MD Anderson Cancer Center, The University Of North Texas Business Leadership Building and a private collector whose collection includes Joan Mitchell, Cleve Gray, Milton Resnick, Helen Frankenthaler, Hans Hoffman, Larry Poons, Jules Olitski, etc.
