Born in Paterson, New Jersey in 1951, Rose has spent most of her adult life in the Bay Area. Over 20 years ago after a successful career in the international duty free industry Rose stumbled across her artistic interest and talent when she and her younger sister Maxine Jones, a founding member of the female R&B recording group EnVogue, started an ethnic line of bath and skin care products in California. Soon after, Rose discovered her passion for creating art. Rose has been painting on ceramics, leather, and canvases ever since!Rose received national recognition in 1999 after appearing on the Oprah Winfrey Show. Her her work has also been featured in "O" Magazine. Gayle King, well known as Oprah Winfrey's best friend, commissioned Rose to paint a set of plates for Oprah. Rose's work is currently on display in West Elm retail stores.
Whats new at Rose Hill Art? I am super excited that my daughter Letisha (Tish) has decided to start painting again. It's taken years of coaxing and finally she took me up on it. I have shied away from painting boys over the years because I knew I wanted my daughter to be the one to introduce the boys she is so good at it. I think she is hooked, she is falling in love with the process and she is cranking them out. I am so excited about this. Her boys are available in the product section of my site.
