Rebecca “Rose” Michelle Downin (born 18 September 1980) is an American sculptor. Born Rebecca Downin, Rebecca "Rose" is a moniker used as a tribute to her deceased mother, Michelle, who tended to roses in her hometown of Mesa, AZ. She began sculpting at age 19 and created her first Sculpturing in 1999. She sketches, assembles, carves, invests, kiln fires, and casts her own work in her home studio (Art Attacks), but sometimes, as is common with many jewelry artists, Rose employs assistants in New York and Los Angeles for fabrication purposes, for example investing the wax, firing in the kiln, and casting the piece in sterling silver or bronze. She attended college under a full tuition art scholarship and received a BFA in 2001 from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, AZ. Rose currently lives and works between Los Angeles, CA and Orlando, Florida .
