Though drawn to modeling in clay at a very young age, Rosetta's formal art training
was in commercial art. Her art and design education came from the University of
Delaware, Art Center College of Design in L.A. and a 20 year career in graphic design
(specializing in trademark, logo and packaging design), which also prepared her for
self-employment in the business of being a sculptor.
Her 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?s work, ranging from miniature to monumental, has been purchased for
museum, public art and corporate and private collections and has been exhibited
nationally and internationally in museums and galleries, in juried and invitational
exhibitions, where it has garnered many awards from such exhibitions as the National
Sculpture Society, Northwest Rendezvous Group, Society of Animal Artists, American
Women Artists, Allied Artists of America, Artists for Conservation, Bennington Center
for the Arts, Pen & Brush Inc., and the Bosque Conservatory Art Council.
Other exhibitions include solo shows at the Brevard Museum of Art and Science in
Melbourne, FL, Indiana University, Southwestern Michigan College, Southern Oregon
State College and Gallery Americana in Carmel, CA, and group shows at the National
Geographic Society in Washington DC, Brookgreen Gardens SC, Meguro Museum of
Art in Tokyo, The Smithsonian Institution, National Academy of Design in NY, National
Museum of Wildlife Art WY, North American Sculpture Exhibition CO, Leigh Yawkey
