This is my Passion – bringing the Old World to Olde Naples

Passionfruit Art Gallery, located on the water at 1100 Sixth Avenue South, #5 brings you the beautiful art of Europe. They have a broad collection of paintings, ceramics, sculptures, and much more. Natalia Stepina, the owner of the gallery carefully selects pieces of art that showcase each of the artists' passions and life stories.

Natalia, born and raised in Moscow, Russia, has been blessed to work with remarkable people all over the world. Travelling between four continents and thirty-three countries in Europe alone she has a great eye for art. She has spent countless hours visiting many iconic museums of the world including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Tower of London, and The Prado Museum. Some of her best memories were touring the Musée du Louvre in Paris, France, and the Vatican Museums.

Natalia previously spent twenty-nine years in Fortune 500 companies with more than fifteen years in top executive positions. Her career began with Proctor & Gamble, and later she became a VP in Human Resources for LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton and Group Clarins. Working in this field taught her how to sense people well and understand their needs and desires.

In deciding to open Passionfruit Art Gallery, Natalia wanted to share her vision of the artworld with you. She has designated “Art Tasting Nights” each month from 5:30-7:30 p.m. for networking where champagne and hors d'oeuvres are served creating a lovely atmosphere in a beautiful artistic setting on the water.
