Although primarily a wilderness painter, Rose Wark has an inability to settle down to one thing and enjoys exploring new techniques, materials and subjects. One of these is marbling – first as a means to generate organic patterns to be used in paintings or material for collage. She developed her craft over many years and then started giving marbling workshops.Rose studied at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. She has exhibited in Canada, U.S.A. and Japan and also teaches painting and English. She works in acrylic, monotype, collage and pastel.
Recently her marbling designs were turned into a lightshow for a Cirque de Soleil performance in Istanbul. She also worked with in a performance art “The Colour of Music”, a fascinating piece where musical notes are turned into colour.
