Rosemary was born in Nottingham in 1960 and originally trained and qualified as a registered nurse in Sheffield.  A year into further midwifery training in 1983 she gave up her studies to undertake an Arts Foundation Course and gained a B.A. (Hons) degree in Textile and Fashion Design at Winchester School of Art (1984 -1987).  in both 1988 and 1989 Rosemary was awarded places at The Royal College of Art, London, to study for an M.A. in Fine Art Printmaking but the birth of her first daughter and then her son in those years meant she was unable to attend.

Rosemary spent the next 20 years initially as a successful textile designer for the international bedding and furnishings market creating designs for, among others, John Lewis, Jeff Banks and Vymura and various print and weave companies across the world.  

In 2009 Rosemary was able to commit herself to life as a full time artist.  Printmaking, she feels, has instinctively been her focus (she won the Printmakers' Printmaker Award at Printfest Cumbria in 2013) but painting has recently become an inspirational and important part of her work.  Mark making and colour continue to predominate in both disciplines and her love of Still Life is depicted in either semi-abstracted or in more illustrative form.  Her work has been described as, "a mixture of still life and landscape pieces that have a beautiful abstract fluidity and movement with a warm, earthy palette".

Rosemary prepares and prints all her own small edition screenprints in her studio in the Derbyshire Peak District and exhibits regularly in several highly regarded galleries and art fairs in the UK.
