Born in the South, living in the North, J. Rosario is a multidisciplinary artist, passionate about colours, shapes, animation and the “magic: happening behind the browser.

She also loves painting pieces in pastels and venturing into digital painting, exploring different styles, being Abstract, Naiff and African Art her favorites.
