From her days making Gnome houses in the woods for uninterrupted hours, to her years in formal art classes, beginning at the age of eight, Rosemary has never stopped creating. Whatever materials were at hand were put use. Rosemary was an award winning artist in high school and went on to study at the Corcoran College of Art + Design and the Washington Studio School. She has worked for an internationally recognized design studio and is now the owner of Tangelo Studio. Rosemary's work can be found in private collections in Philadelphia, Washington DC, Seattle, and San Francisco
It was a love for artists on the margins, the ones that land somewhere between Outsider Art and mainstream art, which inspired her in her time spent away from the influences of art world trend. It was these years that gave Rosemary the freedom to develop work that is not easily defined - from her oil on panel portraiture, to her series in papier mâché
Rosemary lives with her husband and three young children in the Blue Ridge Mountains where she can be found making paper people in the kitchen, wrangling chickens, and milking goats.
