Artist Biography

Marisol Gullo owns and operates Not Too Shabby Boutique in Santa Rosa Beach, FL along with her husband, Tony. There they specialize in restoring custom furniture and is where Marisol’s passion for art took off.

Marisol has taken her life experience and built her own, one of a kind aesthetic and vision. Marisol grew up in Costa Rica, earned her law degree, and became a lawyer. She and Tony met in Costa Rica where they decided to get married and move to the United States shortly after. Tony had vacationed in South Walton as a kid and brought Marisol to the Gulf Coast during their honeymoon and she immediately fell in love. They promised each other that they would move to the area one day to start their family and sure enough, within a year they packed up and moved to South Walton in 2001.

Marisol was drawn to the beautiful and peaceful way of life in South Walton and felt that there could be no place more perfect to raise a family.

 

She and her family love the community and have built a life and a business here. Marisol loves the melting pot feel of the area and loves that so many people have chosen to live here on these beautiful beaches and all realize how special a place South Walton truly is.

Marisol believes in following one’s dreams, adapting to any situation, and to challenge herself both in her personal life and her art. For Marisol, discovering new inspiration is the most rewarding part of her work as an artist.

Marisol Gullo moved to South Walton in 2001 with her husband, Tony. She immediately fell in love with the area and was inspired to start painting. Marisol began experimenting with different textures and colors in her work, often trying to capture the beauty and movement of the Emerald Coast, like the Heron’s (submitted for application) stilt-like legs disappearing into the tall grass.

Many themes run through Marisol’s work, and you can see the heavy influence of South Walton – through the colors like a piece of blue sea glass, the textures and details of the coast, and the subjects in her pieces. Marisol is inspired by local, coastal birds, marine life, florals, and things one could only find along the sugar white sands of the Emerald Coast. The Lionfish piece (submitted for application) supports local Lionfish removal efforts that help protect these local waters.

Marisol’s love to travel and her love of old buildings has played a large role in her furniture design and her paintings. Marisol finds the beauty in older pieces she sees along her travels and her way to express her love for these things is through her art forms, both furniture and painting. The antique technique of the Blue Roses (submitted for application) expresses Marisol’s more feminine side and that how she’s inspired by the many strong women in her life.
