Rosemary Marshall watercolours
Rosemary is a self-taught Australian artist who came to painting in the early Nineties; she initially had lessons from the watercolourist Jan McNeil but group painting was not conducive to her highly detailed style and it’s demand for concentration that she developed early on.
She tends to reflect a Japanese aesthetic which blends in harmoniously with both modern and Arts & Crafts furniture & interiors.
She previously worked for nearly 30 years as a restorer of historic gardens,
which initially prevented her dedication to the painting that she so loved.
But now, in recent years, in the tranquillity of her homestead in New South Wales,
she has been able to finally satisfy her love of painting.
She derives great joy from seeing an appealing assemblage of flowers and objects before her; drawing them and applying a colour-laden brush and gently lapping it upon the paper is immense.
She has completed countless commissioned works both for private and now soon to be public commissions for her new local hospital.
Looking back, she is naturally aware that in her landscaping, she was utilising tangible living and static forms and colour to create live paintings!
Naturally, she intimately identifies with The Arts and Crafts ideal of functional honest crafted works and is one that has had a lifelong closeness thanks to her parents’ own abiding respect for charm and character in their home and garden.
This is the first time that Rosemary has exhibited her works in London.
