Gallery of Rose Gilbey
Rose grew up with art all around her. Her parents met while studying art at East Sydney Technical College so it was natural for Rose to follow in their footsteps.
Rose has produced art in many forms and is not limited to the traditional painting and drawing genre. For example, after leaving school she become a Florist and worked in this trade for 30 or so years. This was a career in which she could combine her creativity and her love of nature as an art form.
After having a family and while still working as a florist, she decided to pursue her formal art education. After attaining an Associate Diploma in Fine Art at the Penrith Technical College, Rose completed a B.A. of Fine Art at The National Art School in Sydney, majoring in painting and drawing.
Her work has been shown in group and solo exhibitions and now resides in many private collections both here in Australia and overseas.
As an artist Rose’s work is often based on nature and the simple beauty of things around her.
Rose has taught art at TAFE, secondary school level and in community colleges. She takes great pleasure in enhancing the natural ability of her students using media such as graphite, charcoal, pastel and paint to name a few.
Together with her ability for painting and drawing comes her love of creating and sharing her knowledge. She believes that behind every work of art there should be a strong foundation of drawing and composition.
