Who is Rosemary Swann?

Artist Rosemary Nichols Swann was raised in San Antonio and Austin, Texas with a love that supported her interests in art and nature. Aesthetic parents channeled her interest in the arts from an early age by providing her with an education that established the bedrock of her identity as an artist. The nature of Texas gifted her with the laboratory her imagination desired and a sense of belonging to its abundance of free flowing springs, creeks and thickets filled with crawdads, tadpoles, garter snakes, feral cats, wild birds and insects.

Rosemary pursued art as her focal point in her life and educational interest throughout her early years and eventually earned a BFA from the University of Texas at Denton. After graduation, marriage and several years in a related professional career Rosemary and her husband and their dog relocated to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico where she returned to painting on a full time basis. Since that time Rosemary has worked in several mediums: oil on canvas, oil pastel and oil stick on paper, collage, lithography and book arts. She often includes some of the artisanal riches from her local environment in her work such as hand carved and gold leafed panels and frames.

The artist and her husband, two dogs and one cat now reside out side of San Miguel in the historic pueblo of El Sanctuario de Atotonilco in a home that the couple designed and built themselves. Located once more in a spring-fed environment filled with trees, insect and birdsong, Rosemary can be found working with her imagination surrounded by the nature she loves.

Rosemary‘s work has been collected over the years by patrons from both the United States and Mexico. Her work has been exhibited in museums and galleries in both countries. She enjoys continuing her education in Mexico, the United States and abroad.
