Born in 1977, Rose Anderson spent her childhood immersed in extremist religious beliefs that replaced history and scientific fact with indoctrination. Not allowed attend a typical school, Anderson spent an isolated childhood learning about the outside world from books. She turned to the nature as the one thing that she believed would always transcend the human condition and could not be taken away.

As a young adult, Anderson broke away from her early indoctrination, relying on science to redesign her understanding of the world. Now realizing the many threats to wildlife and the environment, she began experimenting with digital photography and photo manipulation as a medium to communicate nature's beauty and importance of conservation.

Rose Anderson now lives just outside Baltimore City, Maryland. She uses her quiet property adjacent Gunpowder Falls State Park as a place to build community around nature and the arts.
