About Roslyn

The medium of watercolour has been of endless fascination to Roslyn since her first encounter in 1998.

As an artist she enjoys exploring the possibilities that this medium has to offer, with particular focus on how it can create the illusion of texture within a painting. This particular focus has become a hallmark aspect of her water and landscapes pieces.

Her solo exhibitions include ‘Water, People & Flowers’ in 2005; ’19 days; 19 Paintings’ of location paintings in the Greek Islands, 2010 and “The Rock and the River” in 2015.

As a tutor she has a wealth of experience, having taught weekly classes at Murray’s Art & Framing (Toowoomba) for the past 12 years as well as workshops in various other locations.
