“Making a painting perfect for me isn’t about how the piece turns out, it’s about the enjoyment I have producing it. The older I get, the more important that is to me..”
ROZANNE BELLBorn in this Southern African country in 1962, Rozanne’s early work was inspired by Zimbabwe’s jaw-dropping natural beauty and timeless culture. During this period, Zimbabwe’s burgeoning tourist industry began to expose her work to an international audience where she found particular popularity in the USA and UK. Indeed, when Zimbabwe left the Commonwealth in 2002, Rozanne chose to settle in England and merge the drama and impact of the African landscape with the mystery and atmosphere of the Dorset coast.
"Ever since I first picked up a paint brush with my mother as a little girl, the compulsion to paint has dominated my life. I know that the extraordinary colours, light and contrasts of Zimbabwe where I grew up are to blame. Art became and has ever been my friend, supporting my children and me throughout."

Scott Bauer Abstract Artist A thoughtful and quietly spoken artist, Scott Bauer’s polite manner is the perfect reflection of a series of accomplished original acrylic works with pristine painted stripes as their signature structure. A genre named by the artist as linear formalism, the term conjures thoughts of complex algebraic formulas, a mindset far away from the freedom of creative imagination. Using fragments of memory along with his perception of the world, the artist distills light and colour into stunningly rendered stripes. Waved, faded and pure, the outcome are pieces both calmly meditative and excitingly vivid. Wyecliffe Galleries are privileged to share an insight in to the mind of this emerging artist.
