Rosie Phipps has been painting since she was a young girl. She matriculated in Art and Art History. Teachers included Mrs Bullock (Auckland Park School), Miss Harmson and Miss Waldie (Parktown Girls High School) in Johannesburg South Africa where she was brought up. Rosie has lived in England since 1969 and has been living in Oxford from 1977.
Friend and sculptor John Buckley has provided much encouragement and guidance. Rosie’s paintings are reflections on life – childbirth, motherhood, fatherhood, relationships, meditation, spirituality, nature, sexuality and dying. The pictures reflect the temporal and the spiritual,the archetypal structure of the psyche and the images it provides as we move through life, its seasons and its celebrations. She also loves painting the Cotswolds.
Rosie is the Founder of Oxford Professional Education Group and OxfordLearning Lab. She has also written books on marketing and business start-ups, local history and cycling safety. Rosie is a member of Writers in Oxford, Oxford Art Society and LiterArties.
