The Reinvention of Roma

November 07, 2022

She's back....! After a well-deserve hiatus for our team, Built In Texas is excited to return with our special guest this week, artist Roma Osowo.


A color-loving abstract artist who creates vibrant, joy-filled art to elevate beautiful spaces, Roma was born in the British Virgin Islands and graduated from the Inter American University of Puerto Rico with a degree in Business Administration and a minor in Marketing. She worked in Marketing Management before eventually transitioning to staying at home with her kids to homeschool them. After a twelve year hiatus, Roma returned to her brushes in January of 2017 and a true fire was sparked within her to pursue her first love, which was painting.


Roma recently announced her featured 18-piece collection with Target. Check it out here.

Texas Woman That Inspires Me:

Georgia O’Keefe. Because she was an incredibly talented artist who was not born in Texas, but lived and taught here for quite a while and made Texas home.
