By Rosalind Batty of North Mayo Fine Art
Rosalind Batty is the artist behind North Mayo Fine Art. She lives on the West Coast of Ireland, with her Husband and children.
Rosalind works in coloured pencil, and specialises in photorealism. Rosalind has always been interested in drawing, and started drawing at a young age. She would draw lots of photos that she owned or bought, and practiced her skills and techniques with every piece that she created.
Rosalind only became serious about drawing when her health deteriorated, and she became disabled and living with multiple chronic illnesses. She had to give up all of her hobbies when she became bed bound, but could still draw, in bed on her bad days and in her chair on her good days. It became a therapy for her. Rosalind now draws full time (health permitting) and has drawn for some very important clients, her most famous to date being Comedian John Bishop and his lovely wife Melanie.
Rosalind is also currently working on a series of drawings from the Queen Victoria TV Series, having gained exclusive permission from the film company that created the series. The first drawing in the series, called ‘A Royal Gathering’ is on display throughout the exhibition.
If you would like to know any information about the pieces, or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask them on the opening night, or contact Rosalind, either on
