Though born in Chicago, visual artist Antoinette Rosa spent several years visiting numerous countries throughout Asia, Europe, the Baltic and more. While traveling, she was greatly inspired by the art and architecture she experienced in the vast array of museums, galleries, and artistic communities that she encountered. Finally settling in Las Vegas, Nevada, her professional art career began with studies in Fine Art at the College of Southern Nevada.
In 2008 Antoinette was awarded a Presidential Merit Scholarship to the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts and Art History, Theory and Criticism in 2010.
Remaining in Chicago, Antoinette maintains a studio practice at the Mana Contemporary Arts Building, where she continues to create visual works as well as teach painting and drawing workshops, host visiting artist talks, and moderate studio critiques. Her most recent body of work: Transmogrification, involves combination of unpredictable, chance process, combined with the application of specificity and control.
