Roma Tearne is the author of “Mosquito”. She was born in Sri Lanka, but arrived in Britain aged 10 in 1964. The boat journey from Sri Lanka took 21 days over rough seas. The family lived in Brixton for some time, something that influenced Roma Tearne’s 2002 exhibition “The House of Small Things”. Roma Tearne completed her MA at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art. From 2002 to 2003, she was artist in residence at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford. She has also been artist in residence at Modern Art, Oxford. Roma Tearne is currently embarked on a 3-year research fellowship from Oxford Brookes University. Her project, entitled “Investigating and Accessing Narrative and Memory Through Artistic Practice in a Museum Context” will involve working at the Imperial War Museum and Pompeii. Her current emphasis as an artist is discovering the secret and fragile histories found in public spaces, objects, and photographic archives. Roma Tearne lives in Oxford.
