Rosa uses observation from every day life to tell stories which are playful and engaging, but have underlying social criticisms. She aims for a deceptive simplicity, communicated through expressive drawing, visual metaphor and sound. Rosa enjoys combining a jokey, light hearted aesthetic with darker, serious topics.
