About The Artist

Rosemary lives on the outskirts of Boston, MA where she works from her home studio as a full time painter and illustrator. She was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa and studied at the Johannesburg College of Education, specializing in elementary education and art. As a teacher and an artist, Rosemary experienced first hand the positive effects of art and creativity on the children she taught, and this engendered in her a deep love of illustration and visual story-telling. Rosemary has exhibited and sold paintings in South Africa and in the United States and has illustrated two children's books.
