A little about me....
          Rose Sciberras


It is very common for pages about the artist to start with something like:  "I have been drawing for as long as I could hold a pencil...."  Well, with me that is not the case.  I came to art very late in life but having got here it feels like it was always meant to be. 

I was born on the Island of Malta in 1953, the youngest of a family of five children.  My eldest brother studied, and for a time even taught, art but I never thought of art as a career.  I was more inclined towards literature and the theater, reading a degree in English at the University of Malta.

I was one of the lucky ones in my generation.  The day after I finished my final exams I started working in the news room of our national broadcasting station.  My first job was as translator of news bulletins into English but in no time at all I was assigned as a TV and radio journalist and in less than a year I was anchoring news and was producing and presenting my own current affairs programme. It was a relatively brief career though... I left work for marriage and a family.

Ten years and three kids later I was itching to get back into the world of work.  I went back to university, this time to study....law!  Qualifying as Legal Procurator I practiced for twelve years and then decided it was time to retire again, or almost.  I was then and still am a board member of the Malta Broadcastng  Authority, the local radio and TV watchdog.

Four years into this semi retirement, and at the urging of a very dear friend of mine, I discovered art.  I did not seek formal training - the internet has been my school and my internet friends my most valued teachers, critics and advisers.

I first started with graphite and did some very interesting work but soon I was longing for colour.  I moved to coloured pencils which I still use when I am seeking particular effects but very soon I bumped into soft pastels and it was love at first dusty touch! I have since moved to acrylics and oils but  one feature of my art is a constant......colour is my joy.

At this point in time my style is one of soft realism but there is no saying that that will never change... I myself am still a work in progress and will remain so till I breathe my last!
