Roz Hermant was born and raised in Toronto. After finishing high school, she migrated to the west to attend school in Vancouver. After finishing at UBC, a traveling expedition to South and Central America fueled her desire to make photographs and she subsequently attended and graduated from Emily Carr Institute with a degree in Photography. Her travels have always influenced her art practice and she has no plans of slowing down. She now calls Peterborough home where she lives with her husband and draws new inspiration from the surrounding landscape.
Her work has been shown in various galleries in Toronto and Vancouver and the Art Gallery of Hamilton. Many of her pieces hang in private collections across Canada and Europe. Her collaborative piece “Rupto Silentio” was funded and featured as part of the multi-disciplinary arts event Erring on the Mount in June 2014 and was praised in the fall 2014 issue of C Magazine.
