History reverberates in each of her paintings.  Roseta Says of her current paintings:

“I’m telling stories about why I paint and what I paint.  It’s always about the human condition, and our emotion and intelligence.  The messages are important, lyrical, and provocative.  When I paint, it’s more than just a pretty picture. “  Roseta Santiago, Western Art Collector, 2022

She is best known for her luminous still life and figurative paintings of Native peoples and artifacts portrayed with dramatic lighting, Santiago is a master at chiaroscuro.  She uses mostly living models, although a few historic people taken from photographs weave their way into her art.  She says one of her goals is to honor Native American culture through her portrayals in her art.
