Roseanna Chetwood

Roseanna Chetwood specialises in capturing beloved pets on canvas. She knows personally what a profound impact pets can make to someone’s life and she enjoys connecting with people who share that experience. Specialising in pet portraiture means every time she paints she gets to pay tribute to the character of an individual pet which enriches their owner’s life and that’s a beautiful thing to capture.

She feels at her most creative when she has a palette knife in her hands. She loves to use them to create a bold, sculptural surface of thick paint. The result is a fresh and modern style of pet portrait.

She graduated with a degree in Fine Art from the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design back in 2013. Since then I’ve spent my life painting, honing my skills and searching for my unique style. My eureka moment came in 2017 when I relented and listened to my Dad’s advice to swap my paint brushes in for palette knives; I picked up my first palette knife and my art career took off with my Palette Knife Pets series. There is a lesson to be learnt here… listen to your parents!

I currently live and work at my studio in High Wycombe. I exhibit at shows, events and art galleries in the Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire.

Roseanna’s work will be at Sally Evans Artist & Makers Fair

In the Town Hall from Friday 14th – Saturday 15th October
