Rosie Barber

Rosie is an Australian artist from the Mornington Peninsula who has been painting for more than 30 years working with numerous mediums. In recent years oil painting has become her passion. Rosie says, 'Oil provides greater flexibility, definition and more effectively interprets the mood of my subject'. 

Working on large canvas' Rosie creates art that is clear in its intent. Her style is graphically strong with complex detail and shadowing, resulting in realistic subjects.
Rosie focus' on 3 main subjects: Sculptural Flowers, Beach-scapes and Landscapes. 
Her love of flowers and the beauty of their form is reflected in her detailed works. 
Her childhood summer holidays at Sorrento beach has a strong presence in her collection, as does the Mornington Peninsulas farm and winery landscapes depicting her present home.
Rosie believes art reflects the personality and style of the purchaser, 'It should complement the statement a person wishes to make about a space in which they hang it'.
Her paintings have sold at many exhibitions including Sorrento Rotary Art Show, Mornington Peninsula Art Show, Oak Hill Gallery and Continental Hotel at Sorrento. In addition to these locations her work has also sold in New South Wales, Tasmania and Victoria to private collectors.
