Artist Statement

Abstract work destined for contemporary spaces.

Rosanne's abstract minimalist art is inspired by the magnificent sculptures of Barbara Hepworth on display at Tate St. Ives; by delicate colours reflected through light and water in Xaquixe handblown glass created in Oaxaca City in Mexico; as well as deeply personal spiritual experiences reflected in the Essence of Being series.

Each work of art (Limited Edition of 5) is based on a macro photograph Rosanne has taken that has been adjusted digitally using an iPad, Apple Pencil, and a variety of digital applications. No paint is applied: colour is added using virtual paintbrushes to create dramatic impact. Works are printed on metal panel or plexiglass, sized to suit your space, and are priced accordingly.


While teaching for over thirty years and working as a school principal in Toronto, Rosanne joined a number of week-long summer art classes at Haliburton School of the Arts and at Neilson Park Creative Art Centre in Etobicoke. Painting with professional artists piqued her desire to explore painting. Instruction included: Non-Objective Painting, Painting from a Model, Contemporary Landscape Painting, and Open Studio.

For the past ten years, Rosanne has worked in her Guelph studio in a variety of mixed media, most recently hitting her stride painting digitally, finding great joy in the process.

Rosanne is a proud member of The Guelph Studio Tour group, an association of 50 member artists with studios in Guelph, Ontario.
