    Award-winning artist and illustrator Rosiland Solomon has spent most of her adult life as a commercial painter, creating drawings and paintings for areas as diverse as games, puzzles, advertising, greeting cards, magazines, children's nature books, textbooks, and even an astrology calendar and tarot deck.

    Her many publishers and licensees include Walt Disney Productions, Carnation, Travelsmith, C&H Sugar, Houghton Mifflin, Clorox, Random House, Scholastic, Golden Books, Harcourt Brace and numerous others. 

    Rosiland was born in Los Angeles but moved to Ohio at the age of two.  She spent her childhood on the east side of Cleveland, still a sleepy Midwestern area covered with forest and fields of wildflowers and berries during spring and summer, an area full of little foxes, possums, snakes, raccoons or skunks hiding in wonderful patches of wildness.

    Growing up with a love for all things alive, whether they were green and growing, or crawling, flying or walking, Rosiland moved back to her native California and now lives in San Francisco by the Pacific Ocean and Golden Gate Park.  Although she has lived in the past with dogs, cats, rats, snakes, fish, turtles and salamanders, Rosiland now prefers visiting her non-human animals outside, particularly when she is traipsing through park, ocean sands, or arboretum, collecting photos of plants or animals to use as references for her paintings.  As far as she is concerned, her research outdoors (or in libraries, bookstores or malls) is one of her favorite parts of the creative process.

    Rosiland has painted literally everything from soup to nuts, from school buses and forklifts to maps and museum diagrams to Egyptian hieroglyphs and tractor tires.  Now she is turning her attention to creating lovely images specifically for license onto a broad range of consumer home products, stationery and related paper products of all kinds, giftware, home decor and home fabrics.

    Porterfield's is delighted to be able to represent the beautiful artistic works of this enormously versatile and creative artist to all fields of commercial art licensing.
