I graduated with my bachelors degree in Fine Arts in 2008 at Barbados Community College. I work as a full time artist working on animations which is called "Town" and also exhibited in different countries such as Antigua, Trinidad, Canada, Connecticut, etc
Rose’s work is concentrates on hand drawn animation which is combined with photographs, transfers and comic strips. Her animations have a surreal quality and deal with issues that are around us such as dreams and personal problems.
In February 2009, Rose exhibited her animation, “Town” in the Black Diaspora Visual Art Exhibition, held in Bridgetown Barbados. It was organised by National Art Galley Committee and curated by international London based curator David A. Bailey. Rose received great responses from viewers, artists, curators, etc.
The primary focus of my animation is something that I can arguably say everyone struggles with, and that is constantly thinking about our daily problems. There are not very many times during the day when our minds are at rest. We are always dwelling on something that we need to do; a broken relationship, how we are going to manage paying the electricity bill as well as buying new school uniforms at the end of the month, not driving the car unnecessarily because gas costs more now-a-days.
I am interested in the daily lives of Barbadian people, especially with what is going on in their minds.
