About Rose

Meet Rose Hewartson - Brisbane Based Australian Abstract Artist and lover of colour.

I love to challenge the status quo. I haven’t always. I grew up in an era where it was encouraged to be quiet and be the good girl. And not question. Like many of us. Through a ton of personal growth my eyes are now open to what is possible when we are free to be ourselves. After all we only have one life on this earth. Best to get the most out of it, right?

My art creation is a journey of possibilities. I embody my raw, wild creative self and with an attitude of experimentation and risk, I just go for it. Each piece is built up layer by layer becoming a textural feast for the eyes.

Avoiding being put in a box, even if it’s a creative box, my creative process is to follow the sparks of adventure, fun and inspiration. One day I may be painting abstract, the next day figures and the next day photographing the ocean. I will use any tool and any medium that lights me up. My favourites being oil, acrylic and charcoal.

As an explorer of life I adore the mystery of the abstract. How the soft transparent drips layered over delicate scribbles, weave themselves into the finish piece. Also, knowing I can come along with a bold stroke of a black laden paint brush and it can all change in an instant, keeps my art energetic and free.

Through my art I aim to represent those who have taken a journey of awarenss. Who have levelled up their life and are not afraid to explore the landscape of their their internal and external worlds. Those that strive for connection and adventure. That won’t settle for anything less than what is true for them.

And to accelerate the growth of humanity through raising awareness around beliefs and conditioning so we can all live more fulfilled lives. 

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ever been thrown a curve ball in your life?

My painting journey began in 2017. Surprisingly, it didn't start with wanting to paint. It was a journey or awakening. You can read by clicking the button below.
