Rosa Leff grew up in an urban home in Baltimore, MD where making things by hand was a family tradition. Her art form is paper cutting, a traditional craft in both the Latino and Jewish cultures. Rosa identifies as Black, Latino and Jewish and she has found a brilliant way of integrating her cultural background with her primary art form.
Rosa’s work is on view at the American Visionary Art Museum in an exhibition titled “Abundance: Too Much, Too Little, Just Right” through September, 2023. https://www.avam.org/exhibition-and-events
