My name is Rosa van de Vooren and I am a sculptor, the subjects that I have been working with for the last years are male faces, fishes and female forms. The materials I work with are mostly Alabaster, Soapstone and Serpentine that gives me an immense variety of colors, depth and sense of texture within the sculptures. I also work with Papier-mâché combined with wood, metal and paint.

A bit about me

Born in Friesland/The Netherlands in 1972 but grew up on the west coast of Norway where my parents restored old wooden sailing ships. In 1987 my family and I moved to Tenerife/Spain where studied at Art School majoring in Advertising and Graphic design. In 2000 I moved to Amsterdam/The Netherlands where I got back to my artistic beginning and worked as a Prop-maker, Set dresser and Special effects designer for several movies, TV series and commercials. In 2003 I settled down in Oporto/Portugal permanently and opened up my atelier where I presently work as a sculptor.
