Rosalind Bloom has been exhibiting regularly since graduating from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 1985.
Her work is in many public and private collections. She is known for creating fanciful, sometimes mysterious surreal creatures interacting in imaginary settings. Recent work continues the use of collage, transfer print, and mixed media.
Born and raised in NYC, Rosalind Bloom attended what was then the High School of Music and Art, graduated with honors from the City College of NY and received an MA in Art History from Columbia University. After relocating to the Philadelphia area, Bloom taught art history at Rosemont College and Villanova University and earned her four-year certificate from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. She eventually gave up the classroom for full time in the studio.
She currently works from her home studio in Narberth, PA.
