Midwest native, Rozanne (Rose) Hubbard, has been drawing, painting and creating art for over 40 years. She currently resides in central Illinois and works from her studio located at the Jefferson Street Studio and Gallery building in Morton, Illinois. Her art career began in graphic design before turning to fine arts in the early eighties.
Hubbard's art has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions and her work is held in private and public collections throughout the United States and Canada.
"I am a landscape painter but the land, per se, is not the focus of my art. My inspiration derives instead from an area just above the land; that beautiful, mysterious line where the earth meets the sky, where the two seem to melt together into a gauzy mist. It is this evocative area that drives the desire to reach for my brushes.
Experimenting in various mediums over the years has led me to work almost exclusively in oils today. My substrates can vary from linen, wood, Mylar or even copper but I have found the blending qualities of oil paint to be the most conducive in capturing the ethereal moods I observe in nature.”
