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 Canada and the US. Many of her pieces hang in private collections across Canada, the United States and Europe.
