About the artist
Arden Rose

Arden Rose is a Victoria, British Columbia artist working in acrylic and collage and, more recently, in oil and cold wax. Rose has lived in British Columbia most of her life, and she spent a great deal of her childhood running wild in the hills on the outskirts of Kamloops. With an Economics degree from the University of Victoria and an MBA from McMaster University, Rose began to explore her creative side after establishing a mainstream career. Mainly self-taught, she is influenced by the Expressionist movement, Fauvism, and Amedeo Modigliani in particular. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and Rose sees beauty in the natural world, old buildings, and humanity. All of these elements contribute to her inspiration. Rose’s work ranges from impressionistic portraits to bold landscapes and florals. She easily captures both joy and wonder, and she is a colourist at heart. “I love colour, dream in colour, and live and breathe it, chasing delight, joy, spirit and beauty.” Rose is a past member of the Gage Gallery and currently shows her work in a number of venues including the Art Rental and Sales program at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria. She is a member of The Township Community Arts Council, the Saanich Peninsula Arts and Crafts Association and the Victoria Arts Council, and she owns and operates the Fairfield Art Studio. On a more personal note, Rose is the Mom of two wonderful grown-up daughters. She loves red wine and has a cute handyman named Bob.
