Rosa Canto was born in Alcante, Spain where she still resides. Her artistic studies began at the Fine Arts School in Alcoy. Later she studied in Valencia at the San Carlos Fine Arts University.
She is a master with paint and in spite of her youth she has achieved merited success. On her canvases she shapes her landscapes, infusing them with the great flavor and character of her native Spain.
Her favored subjects are landscapes. Forgetting the romanticism often seen she looks for nature and realism in her subjects. She takes a visual picture of fields full of brilliantly colored flowers or serene Spanish villages and depicts them in her paintings with feeling and realism.
Rosa Canto's goal is to be set apart from the traditional artists and their subjects of her region, by always portraying her homeland from her personal view. She paints as she feels and she does not dwell upon the perfection of each stroke. She considers her work to be a journey, one that gets better with each piece she paints.
Her work can be found in private and public collections in Spain and internationally.
