Artist Bio

Chessica Rose is a visual artist based in New York City. She has taught in public schools, libraries, and community spaces. Working with children ages 4 to 12, she has been able to share her passion for the arts and encourage the next generation of creatives. Chessica teaches kids how to problem solve and tell their own story through art.

Chessica has been commissioned for logos, digital artwork, and portraits. Her personal work explores themes of nature, womanhood, Afrofuturism, and community. She paints scenes and portraits of people in her local area to shine a light on the experiences of life in an urban city. Rose hopes that her artwork uplifts its viewers and brings new life into places that have been systemically marginalized. Chessica is striving to create a positive impact in her community.
