"My inspiration comes when I am in between thoughts, speeding between destinations, or drifting in daydreams."

For Rossitza Todorova, it's all about the journey. Born in Sofia, Bulgaria, Todorova immigrated to the United States as a child. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Nevada, Reno in 2005 and her Master of Fine Arts degree in Drawing from the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, School of Art at Arizona State University in 2013. She lives in Tempe, Arizona where she fundraises for the ASU Art Museum, teaches studio art classes at Arizona State University, and works in her home studio.

Exhibited throughout the United States and internationally, Rossitza Todorova’s artwork is in the permanent collections of the Arizona State University Art Museum in Tempe, Tucson Museum of Art, the University of Arizona Art Museum in Tucson, the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno, the Painting and Sculpture Museum in Istanbul, Turkey, and numerous private collections. She is a recipient of the 2015 Phoenix Art Museum Contemporary Forum Artist Grant, and was a 2013 Squire, Sanders Art Fellow. Her work is featured in catalogs and publications including the 2013 Lark Crafts publication “500 Artists Books: Volume 2,” 2014 “Studio Visit Volume 25,” and 2016 "Superstition Review Journal, Issue 18."

“Todorova’s work is an immanently contemporary example of how artifact, artifice and aesthetic experience can collide to create a series of new meanings about so many interpenetrating topologies of contemporary life, and that our ability to think critically about the meaning of place and space is not just set against our immediate desert horizon, but against a much greater landscape…” - Grant Vetter
