Vass grew up in the glacier area of Wisconsin. Her hometown was small and her roaming
range quite large. She was fascinated by the changes in the sky and the colors of the seasons.
She watched the cows and sheep graze in the pastures and all of life seemed amazingly slow
and multi-colored. She was content to scan her environment to find the colors, textures, moods,
and compositions that she would later paint.

In 1987, Rosalie Vass introduced her signature style that continues to fascinate and please
audiences. She uses mixed water media  (watercolor and acrylic) in a layering technique on
heavy  watercolor paper.  After the paint has dried, she adds scribbled  lines from prisma color
pencils to heighten the texture and the direction of  movement.  Her choice of subject matter is
infinite; ranging from cows to angels and fish to goats and anything else that comes to mind.     

Never content to work in one media, Rosalie Vass has again resumed painting in oil on
canvas.  She embraces the new style canvas that is stretched on a 1&1/2” deep wooden frame.  
The staples are hidden in the back leaving the edge unblemished.  This presents another
opportunity to the artist.  Vass paints the edges with designs influenced by icons, illuminated
manuscripts, and gilded frames.  This finishes the painting with a “self-frame” that adds a
contemporary look to the work.

Her paintings burst with the reflections and experiences of her childhood adventures and adult
travel. The desert, the ocean, the mountains and the architecture of her world travel all find a
place in her work; never as one scene from one location but a blenderful of images from many
times and places. She has painted flocks of sheep, herds of cows, choirs of angels, and
countless towns, cities, palaces, bridges, and cemeteries. Her paintings are like random
pages out of the diary of her life; come experience the joy of her art.
