About Me ~ the Artist

This page is under construction. Thank you for your patience!

Hi, I’m Rosemary, an artist. I forever incorporate being an artist into my daily life, so I decided to blog about it. There is an exasperating aspect in my character that I find difficult to deal with sometimes, especially the older I get. It is almost a curse. For me, everything I see I say to myself, “I can make that.” I am getting better at leaving that feeling alone and not pursuing another challenge, but for a long time, that is exactly what I did. I challenged myself to do a lot of things. In retrospect, I have learned a lot and that was even before there was the internet. I enjoy doing all different types of artwork. Below you will see some of the things I have created.

I come from a family of artists. I was trained at the American Academy of Arts in Chicago but continued on a life-long journey of acquiring and cultivating many different skills of the fine arts. Something I am most proud of is my OOAK artist dolls sculpted in porcelain and manufactured in vinyl in Germany. 

While I  am not creating, I am enjoying my grandchildren and working in my Monarch butterfly garden looking for tiny butterfly eggs to take in and raise.

My coloring books grew out of a collection of doodles. Drawing is my way of relaxing and feeling great. Doodling and zentangling have become a nightly ritual for me instead of watching TV. I accumulated quite a collection of black and white art pieces, realizing at the suggestion of friends, that they would make a great coloring books for adults. So I have just published my first 3 adult coloring books and am working on the next one. It seems I have left the 3 dimensional art world of sculpture behind and am back to black and white designs to color. Coloring definitely changes your world. I couldn’t be happier.
