Roz Oserin is a student of art — and now is also a teacher of it.

“Always wanting to know if I could paint, I began oil painting classes in 2007 at Cuyamaca College studying under Jack Jordan, a former art teacher,” Oserin said. “Two years later, I added water color to my studies, and I continue learning by taking several different workshops given by local artists.”

Oserin is a mainstay of the local art community and is a member of the San Diego Watercolor Society, Foothills Art Association and the East County Art Association. Roz and her husband Dan also recently opened Nainsook Framing + Art in the Village of La Mesa, where she gives introductory fine art classes and hosts wine and paint class events, as well as many different types of arts and craft classes.

“For me, painting is a way to capture that special moment in time,” she said. “Creating a painting that captures ‘The Wedding Dance,’ a trip to the lake with my grandson, or trekking up the narrow streets of Spain does just that. It is my pleasure to paint and share knowledge of painting and art with all those that are interested.”

Oserin states that her goal is to better her knowledge of art, year upon year, and to broaden the lives of all those she is honored to touch.

Roz Oserin’s artwork will be featured Aug. 3–Sept. 5 at the Foothills Art Association Gallery, 5910 Memorial Drive, La Mesa.
