Rosemarie Forsythe is an artist. She paints in a style called Illuminations, which is reminiscent of centuries-old illuminated manuscripts. Instead of words, she embeds symbols, math/science equations, ornaments, and/or intellectual puzzles in her art. Her work is rich in texture and includes velvety matte colors illuminated with gold or silver. Deep, bright jewel-tones are layered in intricate patterns to look like ornaments made of precious gems. Rosemarie also designs unique, fine jewelry of precious and semi-precious stones and often donates collections for charity auctions.
