Rose L. Williams
Visual Artist & Certified Expressive Arts Therapist – Rose L. Williams critically investigates interstices between creative activity, trauma, transformation and aesthetics. Williams’ Paintings and Photographs raise awareness around Wellness, Allopathic & Natural Medicine and the health of the Environment. Grounded in a 40 year career in Photography, Williams incorporates Botanical and Eco Printing, Natural Dyes and recycled textiles into her Mixed Media Paintings, Collages, Prints and Custom Fashion design.
Her current subject matter embraces images of the natural world; trees, water, birds, fish and leaves; the healing qualities that are embodied within; the extinctions they face and their symbolic associations with humanity. Projects incorporating Biophilia, Phenomenology, and Environmental activism keep this artist’s work relevant and representative of a 21st Century artist’s perspective.
Williams is a Canada Council Creative Research Grant recipient, Graduate of Emily Carr University, Certified Expressive Arts Therapist, member of Kickstart – Society for Disability Arts & Culture Vancouver and the Art Society of Trinidad & Tobago.
