Rosemarie is a painter of landscapes and seascapes working primarily in oils. Her skilled and purposeful technique results in a multi-dimensional, illuminated quality of atmosphere, earth and water. Her creative process begins in nature; plein air studies, sketches, photographs and memories provide the foundation for studio work. Each painting conveys her passionate connection to our natural environment. Rosemarie has been painting for four decades.
Rosemarie's paintings reflect her artistic soul and her professional calibre. She believes that through artists, people can envision the best of our world and the human spirit. If there is no beauty in the world, we are as a society, lost. Creativity in all its forms, can draw attention to world issues; climate, environment, change inflicted by progress. Artists can help the public to engage with issues of environmental destruction and degradation through their artistic images and conversation.
You will notice an abundance of atmospheric, often turbulent images in Rosemarie’s later works. She explores the illumination which follows darkness, or the darkness that precedes light. This epochal shift in her work is a commentary on the state of our environment. We are insignificant within the context of nature’s power.
