Stacey Rozich

With her vibrant watercolors, Stacey Rozich brings a unique vision of creaturely folklore into vivid detail. Drawing from myth, pop culture, and her own Croatian heritage, Rozich pulls viewers into a world part Maurice Sendak, part Hunter S. Thompson—a world where mischievous creatures in Eastern European folk attire and ritual masks get high to Fleetwood Mac. Her work is as magnetic to bands like Fleet Foxes, for whom she helped illustrate the video for "The Shrine/An Argument," as to Cornish College of the Arts, who awarded her their 2011 Neddy and a $25,000 grant to go along with it.
