Rosanne Barr was born in 1981 in the village of Gartocharn at the south end of Loch Lomond. She experienced the natural beauty of the countryside from an early age, finding inspiration in the far north of Scotland at Balnakiel in Sutherland, Arisaig and Altbea, Ross & Cromarty.
She was awarded Silver and Gold medals in successive years in Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Art Galleries Drawing Competition and subsequently exhibited at the Smith Galleries in Stirling.
