A Bit About Rosie :-)

Bio and some waffle ...
About Rosie Burns
Rosie is inspired by light and life, her work can be broadly split into two - the figure and the landscape, although fleeting encounters with a scene or scenario also generates work Rosie produces. Helicoidal pattern within composition connects a lot of her work - the spiraling form of the universe, DNA, shells, surf, clouds, can be found in most of her work. Representation of the human form is an ongoing preoccupation - gender, the association of gender roles, femininity, masculinity and its depiction in Art has generated a large body of work in different media - drawing, ink, watercolour, oil and print. Rosie's prolific - she has a large portfolio of work, a lot of it can be seen on her website

Rosie sold her first painting when she was 15 year old, she has always needed something to make. Like Picasso, Rosie doesn’t have a fine Art degree, however trained as an Archaeological site and find illustrator both as part of a degree in Archaeology and Sociology, and on site as a published illustrator for the Hebrew University, Jerusalem in Israel. She then went on to study for a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE )in secondary Art and Design at the University of Plymouth 1997/8. Her first teaching job gave access to a large Art room with a ceramic kiln, printing press and lots of materials, she continued to develop process and technique as she taught - in a secondary boys school for 7 years - a great way to learn. She continues to attend life drawing classes and other workshops to further her experience and adventures in different media.
