Rose Walton's Profile

About

I happily take commissions starting at $250 USD.

I am a self-taught artist, never having gone to school past the 12th grade, and I have been "arting" for as long as I can remember. My earliest memories of creativity are of making doll dresses out of candy wrappers and constructing animal figures from the wet mud found down near my uncles natural spring, or collecting discards of bottle caps, string, and old tin cans to make "people families" with twig arms and green stick legs. I had the luxury of a childhood spent in exploring my tiny world to the fullest. From going on "safari" with my 6 brothers to white mountain to look for buried treasures (white mountain was a junk pile out in the woods) to exploring natures cast offs of bird's eggs and acorns in the meadow behind our home.

I was blessed to have parents who provided all of us…

I was blessed to have parents who provided all of us kids (there were 11 of us) with the freedom to explore, create, and to find our own way in this world. There was never a dull moment in our childhood. This love of exploring and treasure hunting has never left me, because thru my art, I can go back to those memories and recall the sensations of discovery that i felt as a child. My art brings me back to those exquisite feelings of discovery from my childhood.

I have been married for 30 plus years and have 5 incredible, wonderful, awesome, cute, kind, patient, encouraging and loving children (see, i am a typical Mom). We have lived here on Walton Road in Pennsylvania for 22 plus years. In our Walton Road home, I have tried to share with my children the freedom and love of discovery that I had when i was growing up.

Our home is one big art studio, where you will always find a "project" in the works. Whether it be "claying", "dolling", "painting" , or just making up banquets out of last nights left overs, there is always a bit of magic involved.

Thank you for your support, encouragement and kindness. Thank you for allowing me to share part of my world with you.

Sincerely, Rose Walton
