ROSE SINATRA BIOGRAPHY

In 1978, Rose Sinatra came to Los Angeles from New Jersey for a short vacation and because of the warm weather, soon after relocated permanently to California.

Being self-supporting, she maintained a full-time career working with computers and did art in her spare time. In the early nineties, she reached a turning point in her life when she took a plein-air class in watercolor and met other artists.

Rose choose to switch from oils to watercolor, took workshops, joined art groups, and sought out professional watercolor teachers, all the while driven to create good art. A few years ago, she began to work part-time in order to pursue her artistic dreams and to focus more on creating and selling art.

Rose Sinatra has been an exhibitor at the Brand Library, Pasadena Presbyterian Art Show, and has won awards in the San Gabriel Fine Arts Show and the Mid Valley Arts League. Works from her sketchbook were published in the April 2003 issue of Artist's Sketchbook magazine.  Rose has an ongoing solo exhibit at Organization Resources Counselors located in Los Angeles.

ARTIST'S STATEMENT

"I know now that I was born an artist.
 
I can still see my mother's facial expression as she observed me one day, sitting in the backyard, staring at the hot midday summer sun, trying to feel the heat as I painted a cactus plant. She called me 'Van Gogh' and told me how nuts I had become and that it would not be long before I, too, would cut off my ear.

By the way, I lived in New Jersey and never did see a cactus plant until I moved to California.

Over the years art has become my main focus in life. I share the passion with the artists who have come before me, driven to capture nature's incredible and elusive beauty and in awe of her fleeting sparkle of light on a rose or the many colors in the bark of a tree.

I feel blessed that I can see the world through these eyes, although many times the results of my work are not what I see, but how I feel inside when painting.

This I believe, is why I say I was born an artist, since art touches me in so many ways and has become the source of my being."
