In Who's Who in the Theatre, Ross gave her recreation as 'drawing'. Many of her sitters were fellow thespians, friends in the theatre world and artists, and her drawings of them seem to be posed in the Green Room waiting to go on, some with a book in hand, some with a glass. All are done in a spontaneous, nervous line, a line not unlike that of Jean Cocteau.
