Maria Rossella Dalmas was born at Hamrun in 1948. She is the daughter of the late watercolour artist and photographer Giuseppe Cassar. She qualified as a pharmacist from the University of Malta and works as a community pharmacist. Basically Rossella is a self-taught artist but was influenced by her father mostly as regards composition. Her style is however entirely her own. She developed her velvety pastel like effect in acrylics after many years of experimenting. Acrylic, as a medium, is favoured because it is very fast drying and extremely versatile. She took part in several collective exhibitions both in Malta and abroad. She held a total of four solo exhibitions, of which three at the Museum of Fine Arts, Valletta in 1993, 1994, 2003, 2005.She had two winning entries in the Mid Med Bank (now HSBC) competition held in May 1996.
