Art is such fun and brings me such joy … if this ever stops, then so will I!

Joss Rossiter

IJoss lived the first 38 years of my life in South Africa and then moved with my family to the UK in 1986.

I started painting about 10 years ago quite by chance, never realising where it would lead.

I use a wide variety of materials including acrylics, inks and gouache. More recently I have discovered a deep love for oil pastels, often using food colouring to enhance my art.

My themes include:

My art is available as Giclee or canvas prints, and I take commissions. I also have a large range of Greeting cards, which are proving very popular.

People keep coming back for more, and my art is now owned by a number of private collectors around the world.


These three pieces of mine are now hanging in a gallery in California – DISCOVER in Laguna Beach, California.

If you are around there, please drop in. They’ve got some wonderful art at very reasonable prices.

LOVE the texture and the way it just plays across the top of your canvas/paper. AND the hair! LOVE the hair.

Ruth, London UK

JOSS… there aren’t any words, only a bunch of feelings that can explain your extraordinary artwork… YOU ROCK! Thank you!

Angela, New York USA

I love the watercolor feel to the background and their dresses. Again I love how you use the color black, though minimal it is very effective. And the figures are very pleasing, they induce a sense of happiness
