Since Rozanne can remember, she has painted, drawn and followed her passion for the arts. After graduating UCLA and Art Center College of Design with distinction, Rozanne became owner of Arc & Line Communications. She also taught at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Rozanne’s artwork was selected into the permanent collection of the Library of Congress, won Best of Show in the Yosemite Renaissance XXIII exhibit, Best of Show in Politics (Not) as Usual, 1st place in the Pacific Prints exhibit, and 1st place in the Beyond Cancer exhibit by the Canary Foundation.
For years I was a conceptual visual artist in the commercial world, creating imagery that spoke of brand messaging and humanizing technology. The power of the visual message has always intrigued me. Unlike computers, we are capable of seeing beyond the obvious, absorbing implicit meaning of ambiguity and symbolism.
I work within the disciplines of printmaking and painting, using expressive and powerful gestural marks. My art invites the viewer to start a conversation, to explore another identity, and to surrender personal truths. I am interested in exposing the human experience, imperfections and impermanence of contemporary life. As I search for release in quiet natural spaces, I also capture moments away from daily limitations where nature gives us permission to heal.
I believe all things are connected. I create in that space and my subjects’ energy is reflected in my work. Sometimes it’s overwhelming and it can take me down a dark path. I think it’s the reason I prefer to work alone. I’m all absorbed from the moment I start to create.
