Artist Biography:

Tali Marcus Minelli was born in Jerusalem, Israel. She came to the United States as a child with her family for a sabbatical. As these things happen, the planned year turned into five, and while the rest of the family returned to Israel, Tali remained in the U.S. to complete her B.S. in Graphic Design at the University of Cincinnati. There, she met her husband of 35 years, Mark Minelli. After graduation, they relocated to the Boston area to pursue careers in Graphic Design, and then moved up the coast to Marblehead to start their family. Today, Tali and Mark are the proud parents of three grown children - Ari, Maia, and Noa. Tali is the founder and primary instructor at ThinkArt and is a published author of a children's art activity book. Tali divides her time between family, work with her husband at his mission-driven Boston branding firm, Minelli Inc., and her dream job, mentoring students at ThinkArt, her art studio in Marblehead.
