Credentials / Awards
Rosie completed the 2 year Graphic Design Course at Randwick Tafe in 1980/1981.
She then spent 9 years working in Canberra as a Designer and Art Director for the well known design studio, Quantum Ideas Bureau.
She was acknowledged for winning a national design award for a poster series commissioned by the Australian Heritage Commission.
After joining the company Wingrove Wingrove Design studio in partnership with her brother Ian Wingrove in the early 90's, Rosie won another national award 'best typography in books' for an art catalogue commissioned by the Australian National Gallery.
Rosie started painting seriously in her mid 30's and found a special niche in the polo world. Her ability to paint horses is undeniable.
Although originally working in water colours and smaller paintings, she eventually moved to a much larger format with her trade mark 'impressionist style using bold strong
colours in acrylic'.
In 1996 Rosie held her first major art exhibition sponsored by Veuve Clicquot Champagne and hosted by the ANA Hotel in Sydney. Within three hours 10 of the 20 pieces were sold.
Shortly after the other 10 were heading to Dubai to a private collector who then commissioned her to produce 8 pieces annually for two consecutive years.
Rosie has since sold paintings to private collectors in America, England and Singapore.
The majority of Rosie's works are commissioned pieces and when she has time she hosts exhibitions at her gallery on the family farm, 'Walla Wallah' near her home town Forbes. She has leased a new studio space in town where paintings can be viewed by appointment. BACK
