ROSE-MARIE KOSSOWAN

She is a BC artist, working in both oil and acrylic mediums.

Her focus is primarily contemporary abstract expressionism as it allows for a

sense of deep creativity and freedom in design without representation.

Although the compositions are mainly abstract, the color and tone values in her 

paintings are influenced by the natural landscape of the area where she lives - from the 

stunning coastal mountain ranges, to the delicate blooms of flowers in her backyard.

Until 2013, Rose-Marie had been painting and exhibiting her work as a "hobby painter" but has now recently begun to emerge as a full-time artist.

Prior to moving to the Lower Mainland, Rose-Marie lived in Prince Rupert from 1978 

until 2004, where her work was represented in local galleries and art exhibitions throughout British Columbia's northwest. Her work was also represented by Frames West Gallery in Langley BC until 2012, which included her first solo exhibition since relocating to the Lower Mainland.
