Rosemary came to art as a mature student, following adult education courses at Northbrook College, where she learned about linocutting and was also inspired by artists such as Eric Ravilious and his linocutting friend Edward Bawden, amongst others.
She loves the sea, the sky and landscape of the South Downs, having lived in Worthing for over thirty years, and it has been a natural focus of her work.
All her prints are original handmade linocuts, made with real ink, on real paper, on a real press, by her. These are not giclee prints which are only reproductions: each linocut print is unique because it is entirely made by hand.
People are always interested to know how linocuts are made and so Rosemary will be demonstrating cutting plates and printing throughout the exhibition, and she will have examples of the processes and stages involved and many of the original lino plates to view as well.
She will also have some of her linocut block printed lampshades on view as well, and will also be demonstrating fabric printing.
Rosemary is holding live demonstrations showing her printmaking techniques on Saturday 17 July.
