Rose S. Kennedy – Hope Mills, NC
Rose Kennedy has always had a love of painting and drawing! She received a degree in Commercial Art and worked for eleven years as a product/graphic designer for a home decor manufacturer.
Her focus on creating fine art paintings started a few years ago. Participating in artist workshops ignited a desire to explore painting as a means of expressing her “take” on the world around her. She has progressively worked on these skills, seeking the ability to communicate through painting not just a pretty scene, but a sense for the viewer of being within the painting, experiencing the moment through her interpretation. Her paintings have impressionistic leanings as she enjoys applying paint in a “broken color” fashion. Creating a visual orchestration that has its own voice is challenging, but always gratifying as each element falls into place. Plein air painting in particular is a joy for Rose and makes her soul sing! She feels a connection with the landscape when out in nature capturing a scene.
Rose feels that continued work and study are vital to improving and evolving her paintings. Her work bears her signature, figuratively speaking, through each brushstroke and it is her joy to share the experience with you!
