Anita Rocamora was born in France in 1952, where from an early age she was interested in how things were made, and was blessed (or cursed) with a gigantic imagination. Rocamora lived on the Mediterranean coast, and often found shards of pottery on the beach. It was easy to imagine they came from ancient ship wrecks. Her grandfather dug wells, and she made pots with the clay collected, and built kilns fired with twigs, though Rocamora had no idea of the temperatures needed to actually fire things.
Anita Rocamora lives and works in Meacham SK and has since 1985, where her studio Modern Artefacts is located. She has one daughter, two granddaughters, six cats, one dog and one wonderful and patient husband.
