Romy Hosford is a multimedia artist and educator in Rochester, NY. She received her MFA degree in Visual Studies from Visual Studies Workshop in 2010 and has been on the faculty of Roberts Wesleyan College since 2011. Her artistic practice is centered in photography, video, artists' books, and installation art.
Romy teaches a variety of courses at Roberts Wesleyan College in the area of digital media including: traditional and digital photography, digital video, motion graphics, and digital imaging and illustration.
Her photo/video based installation work can be described as storytelling through object, material and historical contexts; often dealing with perception, definition and expectation. In addition, it investigates the concept of memory - personal and cultural, remembering and forgetting. To foster a sense of the domestic, she utilizes found objects and imagery alongside created ceramic, fibers, mixed media and photographic/media art elements.
Before returning to her native Rochester for graduate school she received both a BFA and MS in Art Education from Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY and taught public school for several years in Northern Virginia.
