About the Artist
Ros studied at the University of the Arts (UAL), Camberwell, for a degree in Fine Art (Painting). She successfully completed an MA in Printmaking at the London Print Studio, with the University of Brighton (July 2009). Her work is inspired by travels to places like
India, Vietnam and other exquisite jewels of landscapes. Ros works from sketches and her own photos as a starting point, to create semi-abstract scenes which capture an essence of the place. She works mainly in
Lino-cut, plus sometimes collagraph + mixed-media. Ros has enjoyed working also with etching/aquatint and a version of chine colle’ to give an ethereal, atmospheric, layered appearance to each print. She uses her travels both in the UK and abroad to inspire her art work.
For her MA, she concentrated on the theme – ‘Sacred buildings & landscapes’, using mainly etching. This body of work was designed as part of a commission for the human rights organisation ‘Rights & Humanity’ to produce prints for a new Centre for Peace & Reconciliation in Jordan.
Since August ’09, Ros has been a committee member of the Printmakers’ Council, helping to organise exhibitions, plus acting as a selector for some exhibitions (Highgate HSLI, plus the Royal Overseas House, London). Ros has been a co-selector for the PmC, MA Awards for Camberwell (2015 – 17).
