Haverhill-based portrait artist Katherine LaRosa has been named Mayor James J. Fiorentini’s inaugural Artist of the Month for January, kicking off a new initiative to showcase the creativity of city residents.

A graduate of the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, LaRosa plans to display several of her Victorian-style portrait drawings—done in charcoal and pastel—in Fiorentini’s City Hall office.

“It is an honor and a privilege to be chosen to show my work in the mayor’s office,” LaRosa said in a statement.

In addition to custom portraits, LaRosa also offers hand-painted greeting cards on her website
