Rosa Vera

Since I am Peruvian-born and come from a Latino background, many of my pieces are influenced by Hispanic and American traditions and family experiences.Rosa Vera 4x12 72 dpi

I am primarily a figure painter, because human interaction appeals to me.

I also attach anthropomorphic attributes to birds, especially crows.

Some of my crow paintings are based on an old Spanish saying, “Breed crows and they will take out your eyes,” a metaphor similar to the English cliché, “Don’t bite the hand that feeds you.”

I use mixed media, such as encaustic, collage, fabric, gold leaf, acrylic and watercolor to provide depth and texture to the design of a piece.
