Rozanne Bell has become one of the UK’s most loved artists. Her witty, convivial and vibrant style is always uplifting in mood. Her celebrated depictions of wild-flowers, cosy sheep-farming villages, dreamy coastlines and quaint little fishing harbours are quintessentially British and yet unprecedented use of luminous colour and the trademark resin and metallic embellishments come from a very different influence – her native Zimbabwe.
SHE SAYS. “I HAVEN’T SUCCUMBED TO THE TEMPTATIONS OF LIMITED EDITIONS OR MASS-MARKET PRINTS. EACH PICTURE I PAINT IS AN ORIGINAL WITH NO ONE PAINTING BEING THE SAME AS ANOTHER. I AM ALSO PASSIONATE THAT MY WORK REMAINS AFFORDABLE. I WOULD RATHER SELL TEN PAINTINGS TO TEN NICE PEOPLE AT A GOOD PRICE, THAN ONE AT A FORTUNE TO A CELEBRITY. I’M NOT INTERESTED IN THE EGO OF ART!”
