“Rosy was born in Sydney and semi-retired to a large property in the
hinterland of Byron Bay in 2000. She has since retired to northern
NSW. Until 2007, she had not picked up a paint brush since leaving
school. She is basically self-taught.
Whilst holidaying in Hobart in 2007, Rosy’s love of detailed botanical
drawing and painting was ignited after seeing an artist’s water-colour
collection of Tasmanian flora. This led her to complete a Botanical
Art External Course with international tutor and artist, Leonie Norton
in 2008 and she has been a dedicated Botanic Artist since.
She joined the Botanical Art Society of Australia in 2008 and exhibits
annually in “Flora” and “Botanica” in the Royal Botanic Gardens in
Sydney. She is also a member of the Botanical Artists’ Society of
Queensland and exhibits annually. She has exhibited in Canberra
Botanical, Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show and her
paintings are hung in private collections.”
