Rossi was born in Bulgaria in 1959 surrounded by the richness and divinity of Byzantine Art and the relics of the Bulgarian Medieval folklore, which is now reflected in her work. At the young age of six, she won her first artist competition, the prestigious National Art Festival for youth artists.
The artist received her Master’s degree in Fine Arts from the State Academy of Art, Sofia in 1987. Since then she has taken part in many national exhibitions to become one of the most well-recognized artists in her country. In 1987 and 1988, the Bulgarian National Television invited Rossi to present her paintings during a prime time program. In appreciation of her distinctive style, she was invited to become a member of the Bulgarian Artist Association in 1989. Upon moving to the United States in 1998, Rossi immediately gained the attention of serious American art collectors and her work was even displayed in corporate offices for Chevron and Sheraton Hotels.
