Rosemary Elliott

As Rosemary F. Rogers, she was born at Bexley, Kent in 1942, daughter of Kenneth J. Rogers and his wife Doris née Cubitt. Rosemary studied at Walthamstow School of Art 1959-1963, and following graduation, at the Royal Academy Schools 1963-1966 with fellow students David Inshaw (born 1943) and John Holden (born 1942), her tutors included Peter Blake (born 1932), William Scott (1913-1989) and Derek Greaves (born 1927). From 1966 an artist and art lecturer in London, Essex and in Suffolk. She married secondly at Leeds in 1979, Robert T. Elliott and paints under the name of Rosemary Elliott. Her work as a landscape painter is predominately figurative, there are elements of surrealism in her more detailed works. She has a leaning to return to printmaking, which she studied at the Royal Academy Schools, making marks on a plate and carefully controlling each stage of the drawing and printing process which is inspiring and challenging, particularly with monotype prints. Each monotype print is a unique print and at each stage of the drawing and printing process, the results can be unpredictable. Her awards include the Royal Academy Prize for Good Craftsmanship in Lithography and the Young Contemporaries Prize in 1965, and in 2003 an Arts Council Award to develop a stone carving course in Essex and Suffolk. She regularly exhibits her landscape paintings at Doric Arts Gallery, Holt, Norfolk and has exhibited widely in East Anglia and in London including Anthony Tooths and the Piccadilly Gallery. About 2007 she moved from Billericay, Essex and now has her studio at 12 Castle Crescent, Vicarage Road, Wingfield, Suffolk.
