Rosie Burns Paintings
Obsessive Creative is probably an accurate description. I have always needed something to do, or make. At playschool there was concern that I had no interest in any interaction, just the easels. My knowledge of Art, interacting with materials and technique was nurtured tirelessly by my mother: she taught me to sharpen chisels and carve wood. At 17 I was selling vivid watercolour ink nudes in a café in Kent, doing some private commission work in watercolour and pen and ink. Since then I have taught Palestinian Bedouin English, worked as an Archaeological illustrator, developed pen and ink illustration, exhibited paintings, and qualified to teach Art. I was a full time Art teacher at De La Salle College in Jersey for six and half years. Making Art is a continual adventure, although I work in a broad range of media, spirals and helicoidal pattern in composition are a connecting thread in all the work I do.
 
Education:
LIFE
 
Selected Commissions/collections:
I have worked to commission in pen and ink, oil, watercolour and dry point etching; work ranging from portraits of children, horses, houses, and landscapes.
 
Single Exhibitions:
I had a successful solo show at the Sir John Cheshire Gallery, St Thomas’, Jersey in the autumn of 2004, exhibiting ceramics, paintings, prints and wood carvings. I established myself as a self-employed artist in 2004, supplementing sales of my work with some community based teaching and part time work in Coves Quay Gallery in Salcombe. Since then I have had several successful solo shows and exhibit in galleries, pubs and restaurants across the south west and in Jersey. In 2007 I converted the garage space at my home in Island Street in Salcombe into an open studio/exhibition space, filled with a broad selection of work. I gained a good deal of insight and experience in the management, exhibition and sales of Art work through working part time at Coves Quay Gallery, Salcombe as well as the various exhibitions and galleries I exhibit my work through. At the beginning of 2008 I relocated to Bideford and am now a committee member of North Devon Arts, and have most recently joined two arts co-operatives: Gallery 14 in Torrington and The little Gallery In Bideford. I have finally got a home base and a studio and am looking forward to getting involved in community Arts events in North Devon. Making Art is a continual adventure, although I work in a broad range of media, spirals and helicoidal pattern in composition are a connecting thread in all the work I do.
 
Group Exhibitions:
I was a committee member of the South Hams Art Forum and have exhibited in various media in different group exhibitions, taken part in open studio events and other group exhibitions.
