Although she has no formal practical art training, Rose Eva studied the history of art at the Courtauld Institute in London and went on to work as a specialist for Phillips Fine Art Auctioneers, a career which has provided an invaluable visual artistic education.
Rose works almost exclusively in marble and onyx – exotic and colourful stone, sourced from all over the world – creating sensuous sculptures based on the human form. For her, the sense of touch is as important as the sense of sight; a sculpture will reveal all its secrets only when examined with the hands as well as eyes. She has exhibited widely in the UK, as well as in Paris, New York, Hong Kong and Singapore. In 2015 she won the prestigious Humphreys Prize at the ING Discerning Eye exhibition in London.
