A Charleston native, multifaceted artist Amelia Rose Smith has painted professionally for three decades. A versatile artist, she is equally at home with oils, watercolors or pastels. Amelia Rose welcomes all media artist to this workshop. Her work covers subjects ranging from still life to portraits, from animals to landscapes.

As Rose explains: “I relish my time both in the studio and outdoors. It is my desire to bring life and love into each painting…I employ light, value and color to transport the viewer to a stimulating understanding of Charleston’s people and places. Using a harmonious palette and confident brushwork, I seek to capture the Carolinas’ lofty, majestic skies and ever-changing marshes.”

Amelia Rose is an art graduate of Coker College in Hartsville, SC. Upon graduation she was employed as an illustrator for the SC Department of Natural Resources and other agencies. After years of painting for shows on weekends, in 1984 she became a full-time painter, developing her vision and skills. She has studied with numerous acclaimed artists whom she lists as inspirations. These include Zoltan Zabo, Ovanes Barberian, Charles Movalli, Sondra Freckelton, Alex Powers, Joan Rothermel, Sherri McGraw, Albert Handel and Rhett Thurm.

Amelia Rose has developed a national following. Her award-winning work has been featured at such venues as the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition and Spoleto, as well as in a number of local and regional galleries.
