Rose Edin has loved to paint since given her first set of oils when she was 8 years of age. After painting with oils for a number of years she decided that watercolors offered much more opportunity for expression and creativity. She focuses on design, value and color in her paintings. Her subjects come from all over the world. Some are painted on location and others are studio paintings. Color has become her mantra as she continues to use pure color and lets the color run together to create layers of pure color directly on the paper. Her intent is to draw the viewer into the painting with the light as well as with dramatic color.

Education include: North Park University, Colorado State University Graduate Study and Minneapolis School of Art. When she decided to go into watercolor painting she was privileged to study in workshops with the finest instructors in the United States from coast to coast. She also has served as juror in many art showings. She and Dee Jepsen are authors of the book: Color Harmonies Paint watercolors filled with light published by North Light.
