Born in 1971, Rosie grew up in the Cotswolds and gained an MA in Art History from Edinburgh University in 1993, before pursuing a career in London. Her lifelong passion for art and painting continued during this time but it was not until she married and was raising a young family that she returned to study drawing and painting at Putney School of Art and Design, and Heatherley School of Fine Art in Chelsea.
In the last few years, Rosie has exhibited at numerous exhibitions in London and the Home Counties, including the Affordable Art Fair, The New English Art Club and The Royal Society of Oil Painters Annual Exhibitions at The Mall Galleries. In 2019, she was elected a member of The Chelsea Art Society.
Rosie enjoys painting and drawing directly from observation either outside in the landscape or back home in the studio, working on a still life or the figure. She has developed a painterly, expressive style which she uses to capture the essence of a subject and explore her love of form, colour and light. Rosie works mainly in oils but enjoys experimenting with a variety of techniques in acrylic, watercolour, gouache, pastel and charcoal.
She lives and works in London and Hampshire.
