My Ancestors' Spirit


“There is a breath, a drumbeat, a heartbeat that evokes one’s spirits to the depths of one’s soul in all of Rosanne’s work. If you allow yourself to be pulled into her work you will begin to hear the silenced voices of our ancestors revealing the sacred ways they lived and loved all of the Creators’ blessings.”

—Words in the Wind (Donna Edmonds Mitchell) of the Pocasset Wampanoag Peoples, Watuppa Reservation in Fall River

Across her diverse expressions, each piece is conceived in a spirit of compassion, respect, and balance, giving the item a distinctive healing aspect. Viewers report feeling calmed, reverent, and transported when seeing and holding her work.
