Painting Demo by artist Roseta Santiago

September 14, 2023, 11:00 am4:00 pm


Roseta Santiago will be giving a live painting demo at Blue Rain Gallery from 11 am-4 pm, Thursday, September 14.

At the age of five, Roseta Santiago remembers her father, telling her to “color inside the lines.” A prophecy she would realize in Santa Fe New Mexico fifty years later. Roseta Santiago was born and raised in Washington, DC. Her Filipino father met her mother during the war while serving in the US Navy for thirty-five years.

Mystery and Light engulf the unique Western and Asian artifacts and people that are the subjects in her repertoire. Signed ‘Santiago,’ her paintings exhibit the precision, beauty, and integrity she developed from that early childhood lesson.

She is a master storyteller with the images she paints. She is constantly inspired by the beauty of the simplest of lines, the humblest of creations, and the beauty of faces showing the character from within. Her day of painting is filled with wonder and questions about these lives and the makers of the artifacts. Experiencing this magical journey each day is “like a daydream or “‘dream time'” she says while reflecting on her childhood spent creating imaginary worlds. She paints every day.

Her work is recognized and collected internationally. She has successfully exhibited her work for four years in the invitational show, Quest for the West, at The Eiteljorg Museum, Indianapolis, IN, as well as the Coors Western Show, Denver, CO, and the Settlers West Miniatures Show in Tucson, AZ.
