Marie-France Rose

Born in Quebec, Canada, into an eccentric French-Canadian family, from early childhood France developed her passion for art. By the age of 18 she commenced studying art, theatre and dance in Montreal. After extensive world travel, including South America, Asia, the Middle East and Europe, she settled in Australia where she pursued her journey in art and completed an Advanced Diploma in Ceramic and visual art in 1999.

France’s work has been exhibited in Noosa, Brisbane, Yandina, Mooloolabah, Byron Bay, Tweed Heads and the Gold Coast. Since settling in Uki, New South Wales, she has dedicated her creativity to her art.

Artist statement

Marie- France is a sculptor and painter principally working with clay as her favorite medium. Her sculptures are hand built using clay slabs to make hollow forms, which are then fired in a gas kiln to become her canvas. For her 3-dimensional paintings, she creates forms in clay to add texture and dimension to her canvases. Oil or acrylic paint is used to produce the illusion of metal or vibrant colors.

Her art could be described as naïve. The images are strong and arresting, largely as a result of her three dimensional techniques. France’s inspiration comes from where she lives and the places she travels to, the villages, the people, nature and the human form.
