Hi! My name is Rosemary.
I am a Pen and Ink Artist. I'm probably best known as @r.g_art on instagram for my Sketchbooks and Pet Portraits. I work in a variety of styles but my favourite thing to do is get lost in details. The tinier the pen nib the better!
Me and my partner Pedro are currently travelling around Europe for the foreseeable future. You can follow our journey and the art we make along the way on my Instagram. I am still open to commissions while we are travelling so check out my Pet Portraits, Tattoo Design, Shop or Contact me
A bit more about me...
I was born in Texas, grew up in Scotland, I call London my home, but in the last 5 years I have lived all over the world. From Tanzania to the Czech Republic to Haiti & the Dominican Republic. Travelling fuels so much of my art, but so does family. I come from a family of artists & their love and support is the reason I am here. My favourite evenings are spent on the sofa with my partner sketching and watching movies. We watch a lot of movies and tv. I get asked a lot if I went to Art School. The answer is yes, but only for a year. It wasn't what I needed to grow as an artist and after leaving I didn't pick up a pencil for almost 4 years. I ended up at UCL studying Archaeology and writing a pretty killer dissertation about the symbolism and colonial bias in Rock Art Interpretations.
