A native of Gabrovo, Rosina is now based in Sofia but works in both cities. Her main topic is the cultural heritage and its visual presentation in an inspiring way so she’s often a mediator between like-minded people from different fields of art – artists and cultural institutions, for the realization of multidisciplinary formats. Her motivation is more and more contemporary artists to be involved in the presentation and interpretation of the Bulgarian cultural heritage.

The main object of Rosina’s photographic research is the event itself – the idea of art as an evolving and changing process that goes through various metamorphoses and stages in search of itself and its completeness. She spends long days, sometimes months or even years, with the characters in her photographs to document the process of creation in its nakedness, genuineness, and unique imperfection. The art of capturing a transitional and unstable world – one of the artists creating new worlds requires eternal patience, an instinct for the right moment, and wide open (blue) eyes.

Since 2020, Rosina has been Homo Faber's ambassador for Sofia – a European network by the Michelangelo Foundation for Creativity and Craftsmanship. She’s is also presented in the platforms for contemporary Bulgarian artists Open Art Files and Bulgaria ON ART.
