From i981 until 1993 he worked part-time in emergency medicine while he pursued his art career. He returned to private practice in 1993, opening his medical office in a barn that he shares with his art studio on their farm in Elkton Maryland.
In 2002 Renzulli joined dozens of artists from around the country responding to Paducah Kentucky’s Artist Relocation Program and moved to Paducah and helped trigger a revitalization of the historic Lower Town neighborhood. His studio and gallery (Gallery 5) are attached to his home at 803 Madison Street.
