Roz (a.k.a. Rosilyn Young) has been painting professionally for over 20 years. Originally a Yankee and confirmed city-girl, she moved to Texas in the 1990's. At once point several years ago, her and her children spent a year on a ranch in West Texas - and there her love for painting roosters and cows was born. While the owners of the ranch may have viewed the animals as potential meals, Roz saw them as giant, messy, amusing pets.
No longer living in the country, (but still in Texas), she still fondly recalls the cows that would jump the fence and be wandering in her yard waiting for the treats she would give them, or chasing the roosters around (for hours) who got out of the pens.
Roz's love for painting has been with her since she was a child. Professional, driven and prolific are words she uses to describe her work ethic. When it comes to painting itself, she is happily and chronically obsessed. She is a single mother to three mostly wonderful children and feels her colorful movement-filled work is a fabulous reflection of her chaotic and fun-filled life.
Her work has sold to many galleries, shops, designers, celebrities, authors, politicians and art lovers from all walks of life.
