Joss was born in South Africa and spent 38 years there before moving to the UK.
She turned to art at the age of 58 and has not looked back since.
She creates mixed media art using different textures and techniques including pastels, acrylics, gouache, inks, food colouring and scratching.
Her art is heavily influenced by her life in South Africa, and she believes that there is joy and an intensity of love and passion amongst people even in the most difficult of economic situations.
She sells her work internationally bringing her vibrant, bold art to a wide audience.
She exhibits regularly in London, including every year at the Mall Galleries Pastel Show and at the Flux Exhibition, and has just been awarded the Mall Galleries Pastel Society Catalogue Award – First Prize.
Her art is now permanently showing in a gallery in Greenwich and St Albans London, and in Laguna Beach California. She also had a successful exhibition in Murcia, Spain in 2017.
She loves life, loves art, and is passionate about producing work that captures the viewer’s attention, and her art is now owned by many private collectors all over the world.
If this ever stops, then so will I”
I’m so busy at the moment preparing for this year’s Flux exhibition in London (Chelsea College of Art, 11-15th April).
It’s got a well-earned reputation for being the ‘to be seen’ place and it’s now the fourth year I’ve been selected.
This time I’m showing seven pieces. Lisa Gray curates an amazing exhibition and it always has such exciting ‘active’ and ‘human’ exhibits – I can’t wait!

Love everything about this painting. Most of all, Joss’ paintings are just all about love and happy thoughts… very positive… she is a wonderful artist.
I am SOOOOO EXCITED… my painting is here and I love it so so much!! Words are just tangled up to describe how it makes me feel having it in real life! It is amazing. Thanks so much for letting me own a piece of pure JOY!
Oh, Joss, they are truly wonderful! I love, love, love, them! The colors are so vibrant, the composition is superb and the subject matter is fantastic! You are a wonderful artist, my dear.
LOVE the texture and the way it just plays across the top of your canvas/paper. AND the hair! LOVE the hair.
JOSS… there aren’t any words, only a bunch of feelings that can explain your extraordinary artwork… YOU ROCK! Thank you!

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
Absolutely gorgeous! the movement in this painting is incredible and the colors, vibrant and beautiful. Joss Rossiter is a true artist and her talent knows no bounds!
