Hello! My name is Rosie Huart.
I am an ART MAKER. I create because I must. Come in, grab a cup of coffee, visit for awhile and see what I do. My art path has taken me all over the world. I am blessed to have encountered this journey. I believe the making of art is a transformative process that impacts the soul's search for meaning. My greatest inspiration comes from the power of words.
I teach art because of the connection between body, mind and spirit. My goal is
CONNECTING ART & SPIRIT
I love facilitating art and spirituality retreats. I get to witness open hearts, soul sharing and creativity. I have a strong desire to enrich people's lives and encourage them along this path that we all undertake. It is a way that my own cup is filled.
I paint and use all kinds of tools from shells, twigs and string to the standard paint brush. There is a magic that happens when one creates from their inner landscape. Listening to your own dialogue in this process is very revealing and intimate.
I write poetry and use gestural marks with sumi-e ink. There is a power in the language of words. Poetry has a way to reach inside your soul. I love dancing with words.
I collage and use bits of paper on canvas, paper and fabric. Collage can tell stories just like poetry. Finding keepsakes and remembrances have a way of blessing the past. Resurrection is always a glorious event.
I construct handmade books and create one-of-a-kind creations. Bookmaking is a way to practice mindfulness. Its tactile treasures teach awareness. Soulful scripts on a page are ways to love oneself.
I make Japanese paper because of its inherent beauty. It's process and antiquity speak of perseverance and patience. There is a beautiful natural rhythm to its rawness. It takes me back in time and slows down the busyness of life.
I play by using plants and vegetables to imprint lines and textures onto paper and silk. This is a new area of creativity. I love being a part of nature and the play with paper, fabric and words.

I believe I am a ‘guardian of beauty’ in the world.....a lovely quote by Pope Paul VI.
