After retiring from teaching art in a secondary school, Rosemary had plenty of time to be more self-indulgent. Her first desire was to explore the technique of linocutting. She seemed to be mostly drawn to the natural world, particularly tree forms, rocky mountains and walls. When her printing press broke, Rosemary very quickly moved on to painting. The subject of tree related images and stone walls has continued, but now a more nuanced amount of detail and colour is possible; lino-cutting was a more simplified interpretation, built up in stages, which finally combine to present the final image.
