drawn to modeling in clay at a very young age, Rosetta's
formal art training was in commercial art, culminating at
the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles. Once
established in a successful graphic design career, the urge
to pursue her love of creating in three dimensions
resurfaced and now she is sculpting full-time.
subjects are animals, another childhood passion. Stuffed
animals took the place of dolls, and recurring nightmares of
being stalked by big cats evolved into wonder-filled dreams
of friendly encounters with them. Admiration and respect for
the grace, power, and nobility of the wild ones is evident
in Rosetta's sculptures, which capture their spirit, form,
and movement in a unique hard-edged yet fluid style.
Rosetta has exhibited extensively both nationally and
internationally, has completed corporate, public and private
commissions and has received numerous awards for her work.
