Rosa is an oil painter, known for her portrait and figurative work, was born in Sydney and studied at the prestigious Julian Ashton Art School. A member of Portrait Artists Australia, and a regular contributor to Australian Fine Art and Decorative Painting magazine, her work has been exhibited in NSW Parliament House and Parliament House Canberra, as well as numerous galleries and exhibitions in Australia and worldwide. She was selected as Finalist in the 2017 Portia Geach Memorial Art Award. She loves the dramatic use of light and colour, and will often veer off into the world of whimsy, painting whatever takes her fancy – whether it be urban scenes or vintage cars. Her recent debut novel The Red Door is a fulfilment of her lifelong dream, to interweave a story with pictures … and draw the reader into her own bewitching, and slightly dark-edged, world.
