The Fairfield Art Studio
|Description of your art form||
Arden Rose is a Victoria, BC artist working in Acrylic & Collage, and recently, in Oil & Cold Wax. She has lived in British Columbia most of her life and spent a great deal of her childhood running wild in the hills on the outskirts of Kamloops. With an Economics degree from the University of Victoria and an MBA from McMaster University she began to explore her creative side after establishing a mainstream career. Mainly self taught, she has been influenced by the expressionist movement, fauvism, and Modigliani. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and Arden sees beauty in the natural world, old buildings, and humanity. All contribute to her inspiration. Her work ranges from impressionistic portraits to bold landscapes and florals. Rose easily captures both joy and wonder and she is colorist at heart. “I love color, dream in color, and live and breathe it, chasing delight, joy, spirit, and momentary beauty.”
Rose is a past member of the Gage Gallery and currently shows her work in a number of venues including the Art Rental and Sales program at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria. She is a member of The Saanich Peninsula Arts and Crafts Association and the Victoria Arts Council, and owns and operates The Fairfield Art Studio.
