Rose Kennedy

Growing up in southeastern North Carolina, Rose Kennedy was surrounded by beauty from

the mountains to the coast, instilling a heartfelt tie to earth and nature that inspire her still.

Drawing and painting were her favorite pastimes, so continuing artistic ventures into

adulthood was a given. Rose previously worked as a product/graphic designer and also with

an art publisher/licensing agency creating water color/mixed media paintings in the juvenile


Rose now enjoys creating original paintings of landscapes, still life and the occasional pet

portrait. Her preferred medium is oil paint, but she shakes things up by sometimes working

with pastels or acrylics. Her impressionistic style conveys a sense of presence in her paintings

and she loves sharing her work with those who appreciate art. Painting outdoors in plein air

events affords her much pleasure, as does teaching others the joy of art.

Rose works from a home studio and also at Cape Fear Studios in Fayetteville, NC. Her work

has been juried into numerous exhibits and competitions, winning awards along the way.

Several of her works are featured in the publication Painting North Carolina, A Visual Journey.
