A full-time educator and school administrator, Rosanna María Salcedo is an emerging, self-taught artist who has been creating art since 2007. She works primarily with oil on canvas, and considers painting a spiritual practice, where she is able to explore her hopes, fears, dreams, and subconscious. Her favorite themes explore womanhood in all its facets, and the sacred feminine, but in general she is inspired by magic, myth, spirituality, and the natural world.
She is a Latina of Dominican heritage, and a first-generation American, who writes and speaks about that experience.
Rosanna María was born and raised in Washington Heights, New York City, and currently resides in Boston, MA.
"Making art is a humble act that heals, inspires, and brings me joy. Take a look around. I hope you find something that inspires you too."
