Rose McGowan Artist

"My earliest memory of the joy I find in drawing is being given a big box of chalk to draw out hopscotch and realising I could draw anything I wanted to. I spent the entire day drawing on the pavement until it became too dark to continue. I remember being devastated at having to leave the drawings and go inside."

A BA in Fine Art Graduate of The Crawford College of Art and Design, Rose has kept her passion and commitment to painting while also enjoying a career in Interior Architecture.

Her surroundings have always greatly affected her work. Living in many different locations – her paintings contrast vast space in landscape to crowded night cities. Her paintings are a diary of emotion and change.
