Costa Blanca artist Rose Perks says she has always loved the idea of painting but only found the time to do so when she moved to the Costa Blanca from the UK 11 years ago. She joined an art group here in the Costa Blanca where she began to paint in watercolours and oils. Soon she was exhibiting and selling her artwork. She mostly enjoys painting portraits of people and pets, bringing out the personality of the subject which she says is so important.
Rose paints all kinds of subjects in pastel, watercolour and oils. She says when she paints it makes her feel complete and all the stresses of the world soon disappear.
