Tempe Artist Rossitza Todorova: 100 Creatives

Phoenix is brimming with creativity. And every other year, we put the spotlight on 100 of the city's creative forces. Leading up to the release of this year's Best of Phoenix issue, we're profiling 100 more. Welcome to the 2014 edition of 100 Creatives. Up today: 38. Rossitza Todorova.

For Rossitza Todorova, it's all about the journey.

The Tempe artist was born in Sofia, Bulgaria, raised in Reno, Nevada, and moved to Arizona to pursue her master's of fine arts in painting and drawing at ASU's Herberger Institute. Since graduating in 2013, Todorova, who turns 33 this month, has been stockpiling inspiration -- when she's not working at ASU Art Museum, teaching as an adjunct professor at ASU's School of Art, or creating new works.
