Darrell Ross

I am working on my "The Muses of an Artist" novel. A series of stories, drawings and prints of people I have known in my life that have expressed passion in theirs and how it has shaped my own.

I am looking for support, funding or assistance which would include a studio or residence, a small etching press and the ability to concentrate on this project.

The second project is my Rose Wall Art Project. A series of cast paper roses for kids to make and decorate. The profits will be funded to a rose garden or botanical garden. The kids will learn about paper making and flowers and the importance of recycling paper.


I look forward to hearing from you.
