Rosemary attended Philadelphia College of Art where she studied drawing, painting, and photography, as well as art and film history. She then attended New York University Film School and graduated with a BFA in film production. She loved studying art and was passionate about developing her own artistic statement. However, one must pay the bills (!) and so she worked with Georgio DeLuca at Dean and DeLuca in SoHo New York, then became a member of a four-person start-up team for The Big Kitchen, a large food-court complex on the concourse level of the World Trade Center in New York City. Rosemary then went on to conceive, develop and open her own specialty foods retail and catering business on the upper East Side of Manhattan. She developed a proprietary product line and specialized in catering for gallery openings. Some catering clients included the New York City Ballet, the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Rosemary's store received consistent positive reviews in the New York Times, The New Yorker, and Gourmet Magazine among others. Rosemary's store also received the National Award for Originality and Entrepreneurship in Specialty Food Retailing from the National Association of the Specialty Food Trade. After moving to California Rosemary became the buyer for food and books for Williams Sonoma. She traveled extensively and helped to develop and expand the Williams Sonoma private label line of food products. After consulting independently in new business development for several years, Rosemary became a Financial Advisor specializing in retirement planning.
Now after all these years, Rosemary is thrilled to finally be able to come back around full circle to her first love, developing her artwork! She is starting with "Famous Faces". She enjoys the challenge of human faces. Her goal is to present faces in a unique way, trying to capture some of the essence of the personality while exaggerating some features. Rosemary welcomes feedback and critique!
