About Rosie

Rosie describes her art practice as Performance on Paper. She has trained and worked  professionally as a dancer and within the arts sector for thirty years, performing regionally, nationally and internationally including; Matthews Bourne’s New Adventures, Royal Opera House, English National Opera, La Scala Teatro-Milan, Monet Theatre-Brussels. She draws on her rich creative arts background constantly exploring different artistic methods and materials, to visually communicate the infinite ways a body can move using shape, line and colour as a starting point. Rosie looks to express and define the internal and external stimulus and rhythm that accompanies dance and movement in relation to the environmental situ. She feels that rhythm and its significance in our lives is often overlooked and underestimated. Her driving force is to highlight and bring it to the fore using her sense of creativity by producing art in innovative, interactive and thought provoking contexts. Of huge importance to her is also creating an environment for an audience to experience and find their own sense of autonomy and interpretation. As both visual artist  and performer she feels it is her responsibility to encourage audiences to journey how or where they would like when viewing or participating in a performance or exhibition.  Rosie describes herself as an 2D & 3D multimedia, conceptual, expressionist-colourist, her working methods include;, painting on paper, boards and canvas, photography and digital processes, woodwork, relief and sculpture work, paint pouring, screen, mono and gelli plate printmaking. She recently completed a Foundation Degree Course in Art and Design at City College Plymouth achieving a distinction and was awarded Outstanding Art Student of the Year. She is hoping to continue her studies and complete a yearlong course Defining Practise this September at the Newlyn School of Art in Cornwall.  Rosie has exhibited at various galleries and exhibition spaces across Plymouth including AVA Gallery, Home frame, Oxford Creative Arts Hub and Leadworks. Rosie is a member of The Printery in Plymouth  and will be facilitating movement and art workshops and hosting an exhibition at The Printery in the autumn. Future plans are exhibiting her work regionally and nationally and applying for funding to travel across Europe and USA in 2024-5 to continue informing ideas and developing her art skills and practise.
