'What has gone before leads to what comes later'

My work –is a response to the human experience and strives to tie the invisible threads between memories and the present. Everything is in the imperfections of the surface and the marks and the relationships between shape and form.

After completing a successful year of the Foundation in Fine Art, Rosemary continued studying. In 2010 she embarked on a three-year degree course at the Cambridge School of Art, as part of Anglia Ruskin University. Graduating successfully with a BA (Hons) distinction, in 2013, she rented a studio and started painting. Acceptance of a work, and subsequent sale, at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, was a tremendous boost.
More studying followed – post graduate work, plus residencies in various parts of the country. A course in Florence in 2016 was inspirational, and another acceptance at the RA Summer Exhibition 2018, followed by immediate sale, meant a move to Willingham to a home with a great studio from which she could work full time.
