Rose is a 90-year-old woman whose passion in life is puppetry, her studio in Mildura is filled with thousands of puppets, showcasing her family’s life long work. Rose introduced puppets to her four sons as a way to enhance their learning; this started a fascination for her son Ross, who became a world renowned puppeteer, working with Jim Henson on the film ‘Labyrinth’. Rose is an inspirational and vibrant woman who is still active in her community.
