Michelle Trunzo (1933 – 2016) was a Cuban-American painter. She was best known for her paintings of Cuban scenery, tropical landscapes and roses. She also experimented with portraits and architecture.[1] Her medium of choice was oils.

Biography[edit]

According to a blurb published by the Millennium Gate Museum, when Trunzo was seven years old, her father hired a painter who taught her painting. When she was older she became involved in the rebellion against the government of dictator Fulgencio Batista. In fear of being killed, she moved to the United States in 1957, where she married and had a child. She began painting again in 1972.[1]

After the death of her husband in March 1992, Trunzo and her son moved back to New York. In 2003, she held an exhibit at the Karpeles Manuscript Museum in Newburgh, New York that ran for eight weeks. She held another exhibit in 2004 at the Jadite Gallery in New York that ran for four weeks.[2] In 2011, Trunzo had an open studio at the Ann Street Gallery in Newburgh.[3]

Her paintings were part of an exhibition at the Millennium Gate Museum in Atlanta, Georgia.[1]
