Rosalyn White received a BFA in Fine Arts from California College of the Arts in Oakland, California, and a teaching credential in art from the University of California, Berkeley.
She then worked for Dharma Publishing as an illustrator and art director for over twenty years. During this time, she illustrated over thirty books, including seven children's books in the Jataka Tales series. She then created several hundred drawings for a 108 volume Buddhist canon that was published in the 1980s.
After that project, she focused on creating Tibetan style paintings—like the ones in the current show. Rosalyn also designed stained and etched glass windows as well as drawings for architectural elements at the Odiyan Retreat Center in Sonoma County. She has been teaching classes on Tibetan art at the Nyingma Institute in Berkeley since 1985.
Her study and practice of meditation and Buddhist philosophy for the past 40 years has not only transformed her craft but also her life. She holds a deep appreciation and respect for the traditions her art represents.
All profits from the sale of Rosalyn's paintings during the Peju exhibit will be donated to the Tibetan Aid Project.
