The family is a constant part Rose Fernandes` life and art, it is influence and support for her. With lots of enthusiasm and artistic work, she is self-taught and she develops her  potential in the arts, with her own style and a variation in style and theme that goes beyond  from realism to abstract, using a variety of techniques such as oil, acrylic, pastel and crayon.
