About the Artist:

Samantha Kasubaski Rosado is a Puerto Rican, cis-gendered, gay woman who works primarily with collage and oil paint on canvas. Though she was drawn to the arts in her youth, she began oil painting after graduating from Mount Holyoke College in 2015. In 2016, Kasubaski Rosado attended a Puerto Rican tiple-making workshop at Trinity College, where she later completed a Hilla Rebay Post-Baccalaureate Fellowship in Fine Art and Studio Art. At Trinity College, Kasubaski Rosado found interest in the challenge of color, space development, and compositional relationships. She carried these interests into her time at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, and while completing her MFA at Louisiana State University. She was a member of the Studio Artist Program at the McColl Center in Charlotte, NC from 2021-2023. In 2022, Kasubaski Rosado completed an Artist Residency at Anderson Ranch. She now resides in Charlotte, NC with her wife, corgi, and kitty, and teaches Fine Art and Design courses at Winthrop University and Central Piedmont Community College. Kasubaski Rosado was recently awarded 2022-2023 Best First-Year Adjunct in the College of Fine Art and Design at Winthrop University. Samantha Kasubaski Rosado is a painter, poet, and storyteller. She uses humor in her work to create captivating imagery and rhythm to guide the viewer through stories and dreamscapes derived from directional lines, figures, and color.
