Artist Bio: Rosalyn Watson
It is an honor to be a featured artist at The Chuck Baird Deaf Gallery. I want people to see that I am a Talented Deaf Black Woman Artist. My art depicts stories that have been passed down from generations to generations.
I was born and raised in Gibson, Louisiana and currently residing in Hesperia, California. My art career started at the age of 3 when I drew a picture of an apple to get my Mothers attention. From that point on I was constantly encouraged by family and friends to continue to draw. It was this motivation that allowed me to nurture my talent.
In 1990 I graduated from the former Louisiana Art Institute where I studied Commercial Arts. In 2019 I received my Bachelors Degree in Studio Art with a minor in Photography. While at Gallaudet I was able to make the Dean’s List seven times.
In 2007 I had my first My art exhibit at The Waterlife Museum in Houma, Louisiana. My artwork was on display for a month. It was through this experience I learned how the art gallery works. I have been named in the Houma Daily Newspaper on two occasions for my artwork. While at Gallaudet University I painted murals in the Benson Hall Dormitory. The President of Gallaudet University purchased one of my artworks and proudly displays it outside of her office. During my professional career I have received numerous awards and recognition during art shows.
I have enhanced talents in various forms of art, including but not limited to oil paintings, acrylics, watercolors, black & white pencils, color pencils, illustration ink pens, and pencils. My favorite mediums are Black & White pencils and watercolors.
Currently I am working on building my art business. I want to expose the world to art, one painting at a time.
