Rosie Playfair

Rosie Playfair graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Graphic Design, selling many of her college pieces to lecturers, other students and the public. Then she never picked up a paintbrush or pencil for the next 25 years or so, preferring PR and marketing to satisfy her creativity. 

A successful PR consultant, and partner in the Edinburgh firm Playfair Walker, Rosie was persuaded by an artist friend a few years ago to revisit her artistic side, and subsequent praise and demand for her efforts sparked a renewed passion for both drawing and painting.

Rosie’s work is now in private collections in London, Scotland, Paris, Italy and St Tropez (I like to boast about that one), and recent gallery exhibitions have included The Urbane Art Gallery, Edinburgh, The Sutton Gallery, Edinburgh, Gallery Q, Dundee, the Alessandro Studios, Dundee, Alpha Gallery, Edinburgh, Greengallery, Stirling and Dollar and EDS Gallery Edinburgh.

Her eclectic style is more ‘designerly’ than painterly, but is driven by the desire to produce something which is attractive to look at.

Her stylised and varied subject matter covers everything from landscapes to portraits, including animals, and still life to abstract, but for her own enjoyment she likes to paint/draw nudes and trees – sometimes even together.
