Aspen DeRosa is a multimedia artist, teacher, and student of life that values curiosity, community, accessibility, and collaboration. Aspen grew up between Northern Virginia and the eastern shore and received their Bachelor's in Fine Arts in photography and sculpture from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2019. When they are not teaching or making visual art, they are either spending quality time with loved ones, resting and re-centering or enjoying one of many hobbies! Aspen loves dancing, reading, making music, singing, writing poetry, cooking, podcasting, spending time outside, sewing/styling garments, and community service (to name a few). Aspen considers themselves a highly passionate and energized person, and is very motivated by all that life has to discover and reveal!
