ROSA INÉS VERA
About the Artist
Rosa grew up in Washington, D.C. and in Latin America. Peruvian-born and an award-winning artist, many of her narrative pieces are influenced by Latino traditions and stories, as well as immigration, family experiences and everyday occurrences.
She has exhibited nationally and internationally, including the National Watercolor Society Show, International Society for Experimental Artists, The Art League of Alexandria, Watercolor USA, and the National Arts Club. Her work has appeared in books and magazines and is in private collections in the US and overseas, in addition to the BlackSalt Restaurant and the permanent collection of the National Institutes of Health.
Rosa is primarily a figure painter; human interactions appeal to her. Figures are characters in the story. Her main technique is acrylic and mixed media, using materials such as paint, collage, encaustic, fabric, gold leaf, found objects, oil and watercolor paint to provide depth and texture to a piece.
