Rosa M. is a native of Northern Chihuahua. She spent her childhood in Southern California and lived in Providence Rhode Island during the 70's and early 80's where she studied privately with Eugene Tonoff and Anthony Janello. She studied painting and illustration at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). In the early 1980's Rosa M. worked as a scene painter at the Trinity Repertory Theater in Providence, under David Ward who now teaches at Yale.
From 1989 through 1992 she studied ceramics with Pat Crabb at Santa Ana College. During 1993 - 1994, the artist undertook printmaking at Self Help Graphics in East Los Angeles. In 1995, Rosa M. returned to Providence to paint a mural. Following the mural she embarked on a year of travel and independent study in Mexico as a result of winning the special award in the First Biennial of Mexican and Chicano painting from the Los Angeles Mexican Cultural Institute.
