Title: Artist, Educator

Rolande Moorhead, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Artists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in art and art restoration.
Ms. Moorhead’s father, Rémy Jean, was a professional oil painter and art restorer. She took after her father in every way, always drawing as a child. Her maternal grandfather, Louis Lavollé, was a hobbyist in watercolor painting, who never took a lesson; she just did it as a way of relaxation from work, so this trend ran in the family. Ms. Moorhead has been creating art for as long as she can remember and had her first solo show when she was 16 years old. Many of her paintings reflect themes of war, patriotism and pollution. When she moved to Florida she became involved with an artist group that focused on ecology and the planet which also influenced her work. Throughout all of her career, she is most proud of having her paintings displayed prolifically on both sides of the Atlantic – in America and her native France.
In 1954, Ms. Moorhead received a degree in liberal arts from the College Technique in Nice, France. She worked as a bilingual secretary at the French Embassy in both France and then in Washington DC. In the early 1970s, she relocated to Florida, and became involved with Lauderdale-By-the-Sea, holding committee and executive positions. Later on, she worked with the Broward Art Guild and the Alliance Francaise. Her art has been featured in one-woman shows and group exhibits, including the Ocean Club Art Gallery, the Ann Kolb Nature Center, the Fort Lauderdale Museum of Art, and the Susan B. Anthony Recovery Center among many other places. In her career, Ms. Moorhead has maintained professional affiliation with such organizations as the American Society of Portraits Artists, the Union des Francais de l’Etranger, the International Society of Marine Painters, the American Watercolor Society and Art 24, Périgueux.
