Hello! My name is Rosie Huart.
I am an ART MAKER. I create because it's something I must do. Come in, grab a cup of coffee, visit for awhile and see if you would like to become part of my world. My art path has taken me all over the globe. 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 witness open hearts, soul sharing and creativity. I have a strong desire to enrich people's lives by encouraging and inspiring others along this journey we all undertake. It is a way my 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 and feelings in this process is very revealing and intimate.
I write poetry and use gestural marks with sumi-e ink, walnut ink, graphite and paint. There is a power in the language of words. Poetry has a way to reach inside your soul and dance 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, acknowledge and honor oneself.
I make Japanese paper because of its inherent beauty. Its 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 fairly new area of creativity for me. I love being a part of nature and the play with paper, fabric and words.

Pope Paul VI gave a message to artists at the closing of the 2nd Vatican Ecumenical Council in 1965.........
"Remember you are guardians of beauty
in the world."
