Rosemary Graham

Rosemary studied at Manchester Polytechnic, following her professional artist parents, later taking a post graduate course at Birmingham University in 2000. She also studied textiles and creative embroidery for seven years at South Trafford College in Manchester in the 1990’s under nationally acclaimed tutors resident and visiting. Rosemary is an artist/writer/creator/coach, inspired by nature and colour recording by drawing, with her camera and in word. She has a vast experience of working in various media over many years. Rosemary says, 'My work evolves from my own visual experiences as well as what I sense and feel; often developing into a series of images; always combining my love of colour, shape, form, tone relationships and textures.' The pieces she creates are both large and small scale, combining mixed media. As a poet she may be inspired by her own paintings and in addition her poems can inspire her to paint! A book combining her poetry and art can be seen at Obsidian Art, Stoke Newington. Originally from S.E. she spent formative years in Shropshire, Manchester, The Peak District and Cheshire before moving near London. West Wales is where she's settled but she exhibits in many areas. She describes her flow as being:- 'The journey is both inwards and outwards. Living in the countryside of West Wales with its fabulous coastline and landscape, there is much richness of tone, texture and colour to add to my palette. I am influenced by many places including Pembrokeshire, Devon, Dorset, Cornwall, Scotland and The Peak District of Derbyshire, Europe, as well as America. I am fortunate to be able to pay visits to these places as well as travel to Europe which I also love.' Rosemary feels she is an artist in 'constantly evolving' and over the years has been influenced by the teachings of such excellent artists such as Ashley Hanson, Stephen Paine, David Tress as well as Robin Child and the Masters too. Textile/ multi-media artists such as Kaffe Fassett and Grayson Perry, Robert Rauchenberg, Kadinsky to name a few, have been an added inspiration.' Her paintings are in collections in Europe, USA and Australia.
