Ros has been painting plants for many years. Recent work is painting plants where they grow naturally and where the human footprint is at a minimum. Her aim is not botanical representation.
‘’When I stand in front of a wonderful, riotous, colourful garden border or witness the intense variety found in a wildflower meadow I am overcome by a deep feeling of pleasure. Through painting what I see I am trying to capture and communicate all that being there means to me -the energy, colour, variety and beauty of the natural world and its ability to restore and invigorate.
Join us for a weekend where artists / designer makers open their studios and arrange exhibitions of their work this Christmas. Come to look, enjoy and wander the Stroud Valleys and buy handmade craft.
Stroud and the surrounding area is rich in creative talent and the Select Trail provides a wonderful opportunity to explore the glorious valleys and countryside as well and meet the makers and see the work they create. It is a wonderful way to buy and own a piece of original handmade work lovingly designed and made.
