Artist's statement

Full Artist's statement

Rosa Vera grew up in Washington, D.C. and in Latin America.  Peruvian-born, she is an award-winning artist. Many of her narrative pieces are influenced by Latino traditions and stories, as well as family experiences and everyday occurrences.

Rosa is primarily a figure painter.   Figures are characters in the story and human interaction appeals to her. Her main technique is mixed media, using materials such as encaustic, collage, fabric, gold leaf, found objects, oil, acrylic and watercolor paint to provide depth and texture to a piece.
