Rosemary says of her artwork, “I consider my work to be somewhat impressionistic yet realistic. At the same time, I want to show my emotions toward the wonderful world we live in. I am passionate about the ocean, flowers, and the gorgeous Hawaiian foliage we have here. The shapes and colors excited me. I love the Hawaiian people and I feel their closeness to nature, their reverence for the Earth itself. I want my work to express to you all the beauty of the Earth ‘God’s wonderful creation’”.
