Since childhood, Rose has been engaged in creative, artistic activities. She loved to play act, to draw, to paint, and to make up songs and sing them from a tree trunk stage. After completing high-school Rose attended Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Here, she received a liberal arts education with a focus on fine art and early childhood education.
Over the years Rose has engaged in various creative vocations, including writing articles and scripts, designing illustrations, and creating choreography. Working with both adults and children, she has designed her own workshops facilitating meditation, listening partnerships, arts, crafts, creative movement, interpretive dance, and musical theatre.
Currently Rose lives in North Vancouver with two adorable cats, and her dear son. Creating art is a central theme in her life. She is busy writing and illustrating a children’s book, painting animals in acrylic, crafting with fabric as well as sewing her own clothes and accessories. Along with these more solo pursuits, Rose works regularly with children, facilitating and inspiring further creative expression.
