Rosita is proud of her age and her heritage. African American history plays an important part in her creativity. She says that she likes doing her art in different ways, “Whatever my brain tells me to do, I have to do it or I won’t have peace.” Rosita uses her imagination. Stories passed down from her southern relatives inspired her as a child to begin making dolls and dollhouses from household items. Since that time she has continued to create on a constant basis. Strongly influenced by color, nature, and music, she especially loves the looseness and fluidity of pastels. She uses color with vibrancy and passion with great attention to detail. Setting her drawings in intimate and personal situations, Rosita loves a sense of mystery and sites Sherlock Holmes and Alfred Hitchcock as influences. Fellow artists have described her work as magnificent. Rosita is from Buffalo, NY.
