Born in Montevideo, Uruguay, November 24th, 1971, Rosina Guardia comes from an artisan family. Her father, well known musician and composer Manolo Guardia, along with her mother, a pianist and medical doctor, introduced Rosina to the world of the arts. Since a very early age Rosina studied dance, music, acting, and later became a self-taught sketch artist.
The early stages of Rosina’s artistic career were entirely dedicated to classical dance, working as a professional performer in several opera seasons. She also performed in a number of comedy shows in conjunction with her father Manolo, and writer Jorge “Cuque” Sclavo. In 2004 Rosina initiated studies at the National Institute of Fine Arts, University of Uruguay. Currently, she is dedicated full-time to a creative investigation in visual arts.
