about the artist

C.R. Rousseau


In the Studio

Perched above the end of Post Alley, at the tail end of Pike Place Market, C.R. Rousseau started her first studio; a live/work loft that inspired future work. Today, Studio Rousseau is surrounded by 345 acres of nature at “Building 30 West” in Seattle’s Magnuson Park, influencing the exploration of the concept of abstract landscapes in an emotive and almost nostalgic way.

Rousseau focuses on a path of play and discovery. Rousseau works to cultivate news ways of seeing by exploring styles and challenging previous approaches using oils, acrylics, water color, ink, photography and print. A Seattle artist, Rousseau exhibits primarily in Seattle and Edmonds, Washington as well as in Californian coastal galleries in places such as Carmel-by-the-Sea and Santa Barbara.
