 Born in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Emigrated with his family to the United States.

Roy St. Christopher Rossow

Welcome, Roy Rossow to the show! Roy St. Christopher Rossow. The middle name of St. Christopher was his mon’s idea. He was born in Montego Bay, Jamaica and emigrated with his family to the United States around the age of five. His parents sought out better medical care for him.

Roy contracted Polio at an early age. His abilities drove him to pursue his love of art. Roy’s family settled in Connecticut. He attended Salve Regina University and graduated with two degrees.

He worked for over 10 years as a digital artist and, after leaving a graphic artist position in New York City, moved to New Bedford with the purpose of pursuing his M.F.A. in Painting from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. Roy’s intent is to pursue yet another career teaching painting.

Listen in on the conversation as The Artist Index’s host, Ron Fortier, speaks with Roy St. Christopher Rossow and focuses in on how he’s continued to paint full time and exhibit extensively while going to grad school. UPDATE: Roy was featured in the September/October 2020 issue of Artscope Magazine.

The whole concept of The Artists Index and the journey we are embarking on are still in the making and very organic. At this critical time in our country’s history, as we are experiencing and attempting to remain safely at home during the Covid 19 Pandemic, we will continue to podcast assisted by Skype.  If you would like to be a guest or, have a suggestion, please let us know!
