Born 1944, Sicily Island, Louisiana
Has practiced at Creative Growth since 2007
Rosena Finister works in the Creative Growth studio two days a week with a primary focus in painting and drawing. Rosena makes work that is largely influenced by her memories and recollections of her life in the South. Her paintings depict daily group activities, illustrated with rich interactions, and often include speech bubbles that inform the narrative of the scene. Formal elements of her work follow that same trajectory, with an aesthetic nod towards southern folk art.
