Roses Taylor found her love of sculpture after an exploration of many other art forms. She is an accomplished musician, dancer, painter, and actor while continuing her practice as a professional counselor and marriage and family therapist. She is wife, mother, grandmother, and an “animal whisperer.” She brings to her work the influences from the depths of her experiences in all of these areas.
Internationally known masters under whom Roses has studied include Aldo Casanova, Stanley Bleifeld, Leonda Finke, Tuck Langland, and Dan Ostermiller (current head of National Sculpture Society). Her ability to get a likeness of her subject has been an innate gift that is valued by her customers. In addition to portraiture Roses enjoys free form sculpture as well as sculpting nature. She works closely with her foundry using the traditional European lost wax process and is carefully involved through each step of this complicated procedure from modeling the clay, working the wax, to finding the right patina for each bronze casting. Roses uses not only her own eye and skill to achieve a likeness of her subject, but she also involves family and friends of the subject, particularly when commissioned to sculpt a deceased loved one. Roses’ goal in her work is to capture a glimpse of the uniqueness of each subject and to convey the spirit of the individual character to the viewer.
