Check out Erin Rosa’s Artwork

Today we’d like to introduce you to Erin Rosa.

Erin, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
When I was six years old, I began taking art classes at Kidcasso Art Studio in Wakefield. I was lucky enough to be exposed to art at such a young age, and that my creativity had the chance to grow in such an accepting environment. For the past eleven years of my life, I have grown up with Kidcasso. Not only have I been able to create art, but I have been able to form lasting bonds with fellow students who have the same passion as me, and teachers who I have known since I was a little girl. It’s truly amazing to me how this small studio has been a home for my creativity, and without it, I don’t think I would be where I am today as a young artist.

We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
I create pieces typically using mediums such as ink, watercolor, oil pastel, and pencil. I am inspired by the world around me, full of both realistic and abstract concepts. I love creating art from nature that I see, such as trees or flowers. Yet, I also have an appreciation for pieces that bring awareness to social justice issues. Whether or not I create a piece of realism or political art, I wish for others to feel inspired by it. This could mean others act due to my art– perhaps through activism or simply paying attention to the natural beauties that we often forget to take notice of.

Do current events, local or global, affect your work and what you are focused on?
Even with everything that is going on in the world today, I think that the role of artists has remained a constant. In my opinion, I believe that artists have always turned things that matter into creative pieces. So, when there are political events or social issues arising, of course some artists might be inspired by those instances. I believe that’s how it’s always been. Think back to the AIDS epidemic, and look at the legacy Keith Haring was able to make. We’re here to create and inspire, and that is something that hasn’t changed.

Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
Fortunately due to Kidcasso, my art can be showcased through an annual art show that my studio hosts usually in the spring. This is where my art, along with other youth artists, get their chance to shine.
