Hello, I'm Rose!
I've studied at Pasadena Art Center and California State University Fullerton, earning degree concentrations in animation and illustration. On the side, I took as many art classes as possible and developed skills in ceramics, sculpture, metal casting, printmaking and various other crafts just for the sheer enjoyment of it.
I interned at Cartoon Network Studios and later worked as a prop and set designer for many film projects. I also earned teaching credentials and worked as an instructor of beginning drawing, intermediate drawing, watercolor and oil painting at Mission: Renaissance fine art academy. Eventually, I married into the military life and now get to move to cool new places every other year or so, depending on where the job takes us. I work primarily from my home studio as a freelance illustrator, and I also continue to show my work in galleries and themed events.
Some of my other hobbies include mycology, cooking, homebrewing and nerding it up at the Renaissance Fair. It's a pretty good life.
