Hello – I am Rosie Mark (of ‘Rosie Mark Artwork’) a self-taught artist living and working from my studio in the Clyde Valley, Scotland.
After a career of mainly clerical work and following a move to Scotland, I decided to push the keyboard away, pick up my brushes full-time and have never looked back.
My main work is commission based from clients both locally and globally. I also sell my paintings, prints and cards in a local retail outlet, as well as from my website.
Painting animals is a complete joy for me and my intention is always to capture their personality, whatever the subject - cat, dog, cow or even a chicken!
I mainly use photographic references and produce realistic paintings using acrylics, oils or pastels with a contemporary twist by using solid colour backgrounds to focus attention on the ‘model’. I am often seen accosting owners of particularly characterful dogs in the cities and parks of Glasgow and Edinburgh, asking to take a few reference photos with their blessing!
