Rosie Playfair graduated from Dundee College of Art in Graphic Design, selling many of her college pieces to lecturers, other students and the public. Then she never picked up a paintbrush for the next 25 years or so, preferring PR, marketing and the occasional bit of interior design to satisfy her creativity.
A successful PR consultant, and partner in an Edinburgh firm, Rosie was persuaded by an artist friend to revisit her artistic side, and subsequent praise and demand for her ‘sketches’ sparked a renewed passion for both drawing and painting.
Rosie’s work is now in private collections throughout Scotland and the UK, and in London, Paris, Italy, and St Tropez.
Her eclectic style is more ‘designerly’ than painterly, but is driven by the desire to produce something which is attractive to look at.
Her stylised and varied subject matter covers everything from still life to nudes, and animals to landscapes, especially trees. Although she sometimes paints in a realist way – especially when commissions demand – she prefers more abstract work.
