Rosa Sung Ji Chang is a Korean-born multi-disciplinary artist focusing on visual/fiber art and research-based visual storytelling based in two East Coast cities, New York and Baltimore. Rosa’s visual works and stories convey a message of sustainable balance between humans and the natural world. She takes her inspirations from reincarnation—a cultural pillar in Korea, where she spent most of her formative years—and her firm belief of pursuing a non-wasteful lifestyle thoroughly colors her work. Currently she practices, teaches, and grows Asian indigo (Polygonum tinctorium), in Baltimore, Maryland. Find her at Rosaful Garden.
